Right rear blinker problems

I have a 2013 JK. Recently, my right rear turn signal began blinking rapidly. Checked the rear lights and they work but the right turn signal does not; left is functioning properly. Replaced right turn signal bulb and still no luck. Anyone else run into this problem and know how to fix?

I have been reading other posts about changing the turn signal relay but don't know where it is!

I have a locking blinker fluid cap and so, I don't think anyone syphoned it. Must be from evaporation. It's getting hot now that summer is approaching.

Nice! Where'd you get the looking cap?

Is your right brake light working? The brake light uses the same filament as the turn signal.

I have had this issue and I have heard it from others, I know exactly what you are talking about. remove the 2 screws holding the right rear light on. disconnect the light, wiggle everything. put the light back in. fixed it for me.

were the filaments actually burned out?

did it come and go and come and go?

mine started out doing it once a week or so until it progressed to completely not working. that bulb may have been good but you removing it and putting a new one in gave it better contact.

No, the filaments were fine. The blinker issue happened rather suddenly. I washed the Jeep and then went on vacation for a week. My first trip in it when we came back from vacay was when I noticed the turn signal blinking rapidly.

You're probably right about the new bulb getting better contact. Perhaps some water from the washing found its way into the light housing and caused a bit of corrosion? Having the Jeep sit idle for a week may have allowed the water to sit rather than run off or evaporate quickly enough.
