'00 Sahara TJ Turn & hazard failure

I have replaced the multi-function part on the column. Im looking for the next least expensive method to attempt a fix. The failure was gradual, turn signal would be on & just stop blinking. There are no other wire or harness issues known. All other electrical items work fine. When I'm an hour into a drive with the heat blasting, the turn signal *works* 1 out of 20 times, as I'm trying to stay in the habit of signaling. Am Incorrect this looks like a short or strained wire/harness somewhere? I really don't have the dough to hand it over to a dealership for a couple hours of exploratory charges. Any tips are appreciated.

Now i don't know if you tried this however my jeeps hazards and turns wouldn't work. I had to flick my Hazards on and off about 100 times, and eventually they came on, then started using the turn signals, try repeatedly switching on and off the hazards ? it worked for me.

check #27 fuse under the hood. mine blew and caused no hazard or turn signals. worth a look.

Negative on flasher relay - will try today. How much is reasonable from a chain store?

I remember checking fuses in the ultra-dirty box under the hood & none were shot, but I will check again.

Thanks guys - I'll report back.

This was the same issue with mine..

Take the fuse out, make sure the contact points are clean and rust free, as this might cause bad connection..

Its located more or less underneath the hazard switch.. Take the covers around the steering column off and you'll see it on top.. Looks similar to a relay.

In my 97' the flasher relay is under the steering column behind the plastic and metal sheild. You can pick one up at a local parts store for $20 give or take. It should be a 5-pin flasher, but have the clerk double check as im not positive.. I just replaced mine with one to work with LED turn signals.

Im not the most knowledgable about the topic, but if it was a fuse i feel like they wouldnt work at all, rather than intermittently like you describe..

Thanks to all responders - my one shot at a store today & Auto Zone didn't have any 'flasher relay' or any sort of thing. Will have to check dealership next, or find a NAPA store.

As for fuses, I did find it interesting that there was factory tape across several of the rectangular fuses. I removed the tape to check the one labeled for "mult fxn" ... It wasn't #27, but nonetheless, if the signals work even once, it's not the fuse.

We are about to get slammed with 6-8" snow & -20F raw temps the next two days ... I'm just hoping she starts & stays running meantime!

I've had it with this issue ... To top it off, my power steering pump actually exploded while I was driving the other day. Awesome - it ruined the serpentine belt too.

It's time to sell off my '00 TJ ... So I've turned the signal issue over to a local shop to get it licked. Call me crazy, but I'm looking at 2014 Wrangler 2DR...

With much regret...I inform you all ... It was the goddamn flasher relay, which the LOSERS at my local auto parts store couldn't identify in stock ... Here's a big F you to them! Rollin with signals now. Legal.

My flashers/hazard quit working. Put a new relay in and they still don't work. The fuse is good #13, and there is no fuse in the #27 spot under the hood. 02 TJ. Any other ideas?
