Question about Jeep Cars & Trucks
Left hand turn signal lights work normally. They turn on and flash then turn off automatically. But the right hand side has a problem. The 3 front bulbs stay on solid (no flashing) and will not turn off with the control lever or the key. The only way to turn them off is to disconnect the battery or pull the FCM1 power fuse. The right hand rear bulb flashes but at double the speed. The integrated power control fuse and relay box is under the bonnet and is located next to the battery. When the right hand turn signal is active a relay for the trailer tow circuit clicks in time with the interior flasher unit. All the fuses in this power box have been removed and left out to test if another circuit Is back feeding the 3 front flasher lamps. No backfeed. The circuit earths must be ok because the lamps are on. The only thing not checked is if a input to the Front Control Module (FCM) is active? This can turn the output on. If the hazard button is pushed all lamps flash except the 3 front right than stay on solid. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: electrical problem
Find the ground wire on one of the lights and add another ground wire to a good clean metal surface and see if that fixes the problem. It defently sounds like a ground problem at one of the lights.

check the wiring from the tailights back to the fuse panel, it sounds like an open connection. if i recall correctly check under the dash on the drivers side near the fuse panel for a bunch of wires in a bundle and look carefully for a wire or two that are cut/shorted/or seperated, you can also check under the drivers side kick panel by the hood release.

Probably a bad ground on your front right signal, or a bad bulb. Try switching the right with the left, and see if the problem stays in the same place, or goes with the bulb.
