    directionals both left and right just stopped working. Tried flashers and they did not work either. Could it be a fuse? where is it located?

  • airshango May 22, 2009

    not to sound stupid but what is the multi-function switch?

  • airshango May 22, 2009

    Got it! But on my wrangler the lights are pulled on and pushed off from the dash. My signals are initiated with a bare arm, thats why I hope it's a fuse.

Hi, this is a flasher issue. its malfunctioning. its located near the Seating area, driver side, on the upper steering column housing at the top of the steering column, behind the multi-function switch.

If you would like to check the fuse. it is number 3(20a) yellow.

    The fuse panel is usually under the hood, under the instrument panel,
    or in a kick panel in the driver's compartment. With the fuse in the
    socket, a test light can be used to test the fuse.

    The multi function switch is the device you use to operate the headlights and initiate the signals as well.

2000 jeep wrangler are sythetic lubes used in axils and trans

Hello grega1967, your Jeep Wrangler came from the factory with gear oil in the axles and manual transmission, but the transfer case uses transmission fluid. It is a NP231 and your axles are Dana 30 in the front and Dana 35 in the rear. They should have a 4.10 gear ratio due to you having a 2.5 liter 4 cylinder.

I hope this helps,
