new jeep owner here!

hello all, just bought a 2001 tj, one owner (bonus) the jeep has 160k, i think thats good based on the inline 4L i hear thay can run for ever if well maintained.
i do have a few things not right, i noticed the fog lights were not working so i checked the fuses there was one missing under the hood i installed a 20amp and it worked but only to find out the signal arm was
(pull out switch) not working right the light were coming on off and then stayong on so i removed for now. any ideas??

also when i bought the jeep the owner only had one key can i go to my home hardware and get it replaced.

thx to all

Probably replace but make sure the short isn't further downstream away from the switch (create a known open) before you rip into it.

Welcome to the Forum

If your key is black, you can have a copy made at any hardware store. If your key is gray, then you have the sentry system installed on your Jeep and any extra keys will have to be programmed.
