The tail lights on the 98 use the screws that hold the light to the body of the jeep to ground the lights. Chances are the wholes that the screws/bolts goes into have a coating of rust around them and are stopping the lights from grounding. This may not be the solution but you need to eliminate this from your list.

Turn signal and hazards wont work checked the fuses and the flasher already


Do you have a trailer wiring harness? If you do, recheck the wiring there. If that doesn't help and you have properly checked the flashers then you need to check each bulb

Flashers, turn signals and brake lights


Try shaking the turn signal lever rapidly. Not to the point of breaking it but you do want to apply a little extra pressure. move it in every direction for about 5 to 10 minutes. do not spray anything into the switch as it will collect dust and dirt in the future. This should get everything freed up and working in the multifunction switch. That sounds like where the problem is coming from.

Hi there,

Both the hazard and the blinker flashers are located on the fuse panel. They pull straight out.

When both turn signals fail, the cause may be a blown fuse, a faulty flasher, a broken turn signal switch or a bad connection.

When you try the turn signals, do they light up and not blink?
-If so, probably the flasher unit.

When you try the turn signals, does nothing happen?
-Check the fuse

Let me know if the problem continues after replacing the flasher.

2004 wrangler blinker problem


What other problem did you have before the signals quit? Something that stopped all functions from the signals has to be either a feed or ground IF the flasher is good. Signals feed. Hot wire from the flasher 1 and it should blink underload, but not with a test light or DVM. In other words using a test light the flasher wire should be powered steady. All the rest of the switch is switchable. You should also get a hot wire when the brake pedal is pushed. Check for power at the brake switch,key off.
