Question about 1987 Jeep Cherokee

I had a simuler problem on my 87 cherokee. I bought it from a police auction and only half my lights on the rear worked. It turned out that the previouse owner had pulled a wire out of the headlight switch and couldent get it back it so thay rewired it all with housing wires, extinsion cords, etc... so i went to a junk yard and pulled a switch and reatached the wires in the right order and it seemed to work.

The problem is the turn signal/headlight/hazard switch assembly on the steering column which the brake light wiring runs through. The part is easy to change and cost about $50 at most parts stores

the problen is probably the turn signal switch with a test light check for power at brake switch if no power check for power at turn signal switch the brake lights are incorperated through the turn signal switch

There should also be a unit called the electronic flash module / unit. It should be somewhere under the driver's side dash.. unfortunately I do not know where in particular

I had this problem, and to be honest, it happened to the left side about a week later...it's the board that the bulbs plug into...it's a very common problem with this model. So popular that you can normally get the socket board off the shelf at a parts store! it's extremely simple to replace, and I replaced all the bulbs at the same time!

Testimonial: "I can't believe how quick the response was, and it verifies what I suspected. I wanted another opinion before I purchased a new switch, Thanks!"
