    I have the exact same problem on my 99 grand cherokee! The left turn signal sometimes works, sometimes doesn't work. It's obviously not the bulb. I noticed a quick temporary fix is if I hit the hazards and then the left signal, then turn the hazards off, the left turn signal will continue. Wierd. Then of course it will randomly stop working, sometimes immediately afterward, sometimes a couple days later. Who knows. It just sporadically works. I wish I could figure out the problem without taking it to get it serviced. I just don't trust anybody in the new area I live in. Hoping to find help online so i can fix it myself.

I have/had a similiar problem with mine. My 94 Cherokee's radio would cut out, the wipers wouldn't come on, the climate controls would die, and the cigarette lighter would not work. This happened at any time. So knowing nothing about auto electrical, I took it in and the guy took all of five minutes to diagnose the problem as the ignition switch.

My left turn signal works sometimes, but not all the time.

Sounds like you have a short in the turn signal switch ( in the steering column). Depending on the different functions of this switch will determine the cost. If you have one that simply works the turn signals, then your looking at about $15. I believe yours should cost around $75 since it's a multifunction type. Installation time is about 20 minutes
