Question about 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

I have a 97 Grand Cherokee. My left turn blinker flashes quickly in the rear and not at all in the front. It appears the left front bulb is burnt out. How do i replace it?

How do I replace the bulb on the front left blinker? How do I take the front left covering case off to get at the bulb? Where is a good place to buy a replacement bulb?

SOURCE: how to replace head light bulb in 2001 grand cherokee?

Pop the hood and look at the top of the headlight capsule. you should see a single 7mm bolt somewhere in the middle. remove the bolt completely it should be about 6 inches long. once the bolt is removed then use a large flat screwdriver and carefully pry the headlight capsule out from it retaing clips. once the capsule is out then you have 100% access to the bulbs

SOURCE: Intermittent left turn signal - 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Generally, if a bulb has failed or is making only poor contact, the blink rate will increase since the standard blinker relay uses a thermal strip heated by current flow to the bulbs and when it is too low, it blinks rapidly and briefly.
You still have the front bulbs to check and maybe pulling the fuse for that circuit and plugging it back in might remove some corrosion from the blades.
The flasher relay is probably OK since this would affect both sides.

SOURCE: how to replace timing cover gasket on a '97 jeep grand cherokee

Pull the alternator brackets and front engine brackets off until you get to the water pump. You will also need to remove the fan shroud and then the fan. Remove the water pump and then you will see an aluminum cover and that will be your timing cover. remove the cover and clean all the gasket off the engine and the cover. use a razor blade, and make sure there in no oil or grease on the parts where the gasket lies. Put your gasket on, bolt the cover back on with the new gasket and repeat the teardown process in reverse.

My left front blinker flashes quickly. - The left


Check for power at the socket. If there is no power I would suspect the flasher relay wich supplies power to each bulb individually after it gets the right or left signal from the switch.

When trying to replace the front driver side blinker the bulb slipped and fell into the blinker casing. The only way to retieve the bulb is to remove the blinker casing/cover but we can not figure out how....


try wrapping duct tape on the end of a flexible wire or toll see it you can stick it and get it. there is a flexible tool at auto stores that is about 2 feet long push down on handle and metal finger come out release handle it grabs object and holds on to it

Left blinker is fast front blinker light working left rear blinker light not working.


When a turn signal bulb is blinking fast, it is an indicator that a bulb is bad in the system. Replace the left rear turn signal bulb, then see if the left front blinker has gone back to normal. This is most likely your problem. Let me know if it is still a problem and i will help you fix it. Good luck

Blinkers don't work: When I use my blinkers to


The right blinker issue sounds like you have one bulb out either front or rear check them both. The left blinker issue sounds like either bulbs(both out) or fuse, or worst case blinker switch has gone bad on left turn only so not picking up the signal.

Changing out Front Blinker bulb


I didn't realize how simple it was:

take out the ONE screw in the blinker cover.
pull it from the connector.
twist out the black cover around the bulb.
twist out the bulb.
replace with new bulb and i think the rest is pretty obvious!
