You may have a bad ground. I believe there should be a ground strap on the firewall to the frame inside the engine compartment. Remove and clean the connection with sandpaper and reassemble using some dielectric grease.


It ain't no fun unless you get some of it on you.

My first shot would be the switch itself, they do go bad, they get hot, all the lights electrical power goes through the switch. I've had to do both TJ's and I know several that have old style XJ's that had the same problem.
