98 tj turn signals dont work and more....

Hey guys so i have a 98 tj 2.5 and the temp. Here is FL is getting low in the mornings about in the 30s and ive lost both my turn signals? Also when i apply the breaks the left turn signal comes on but doesn't flash it just glows. Also the light on the dash comes on. At first my turn signals still functioned but now they don't work at all. Any ideas?

move your turn signal lever from left signal to right signal about 10 times quickly and it will likely temporarily fix the problem. Mine does this about once a month as well. I know I need to replace the signal light switch but have just been too lazy to do so. And it is much colder here!!! was 8 degrees this morning when I went for my daily run!!

Switches for neons in junkyards are identical in 2000 and 99 may fit yours to. Cheap. They get lazy is best way I heard it described. It's not going full center on its own. Manually center it a little.

you can get them at numerous places. Dealership, any parts store, junkyards, www.rockauto.com mopar parts websites etc.

The actual switch is at the end of the handle itself. You will have to take the plastic covers off the steering column to get to it.
