Question about 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Can't find the turn signal flasher unit?

Turn signals will not respond to the turn signal lever on the steering column. Four ways work. I think my signal flasher unit is bad, but am having a hard time finding it.

My flashers work on my 1998 explorer, but the turn signal stops after a couple of blinks.


i would think the multi function switch is bad. if you move the lever slightly, do the turn signals start flashing again? does it happen for both left and right signals? perhaps the connector on the switch has become loose. to inspect the switch, remove the ignition lock cylinder. on the underside of the steering column, there is a hole to access the pin to remove the cylinder. insert the key and turn to the on position. using an 1/8" punch or equivalent tool, insert it into the hole. depress the pin, and pull the cylinder out. to re-install, depress the pin and turn the key to the run position. install the cylinder ensuring it is completrly seated. turn the key to the off position. remove the steering column covers. access screws from the underside of he column. use a phillips screwdriver.
disconnect negative battery cable and wait 2 minutes before starting procedure to disarm airbag

BUT FIRST TRY REPLACING THE FLASHER UNIT
it is located to the right of the steering column under the dash.

Right and left turn signals will not work or work intermittently


Possibly turn signal relays do you hear the clicking when you have the blinker selector lever on?

It is absolutely possible, and recalls are free. Take the free recall and hope it solves your issue!

1997 Chevrolet Lumina : upper brakelight (window) works, lower brakelights don't work. Changed bulbs and fuse-no go. Most logical theory so far is that they are on seperate circuits, the lower lights run...


Will your Center High-Mount Stop Light (CHMSL) illuminate when you depress the brake pedal, but the lower/outer lights will not?
-- Do you have to hold the signal lever in a certain spot to get the turn signals to flash?
-- Do you have to hold the signal lever in a certain spot to get the lower/outer brake lights to illuminate?
-- Will the signals work in one direction, but not the other?
If you answered yes to any of the preceeding questions, your turn signal switch is likely malfunctioning.

**One more question before we continue: Is the turn signal lever not "cancelling" (returning to the "off" position) after you make a turn? If this is the case, you have a broken "cancelling spring."


Before you begin disassembly of your steering column, verify the turn signal flasher is not malfunctioning. If your brake lights work fine, but not the signals (either direction,) then it's likely the flasher is burnt out. The flasher itself is located underneath the dash near where the steering column passes through the firewall

Sounds like the flasher unit to me. Normally the emergency flasher and turn signal are separate.

Location of turn signal flasher for 1997 Buick skylark


the flasher is behind the dash where the steering column goes. It's hard to get at and harder to remove. They just can't make these things easy, can they?

Turn signals not working --- 2001 Cherokee Limited


Check the flasher under the dash to the left of the steering column. It's got about 8 or 10 wires plugged into it.
