Blinker and Brake light issues

I have a 1997 TJ. Lately my blinker and brake lights have not been working. Sometimes they work and sometime they dont. I carged my battery with last week and it seems like it started doing this after that. I checked the fuses, all good, any ideas?

take off the light. It is on with 3 bolts easy. look at the back of the light and jeep. clean it and put it back on. if the ground is bad the light will work off and on.

pop the bulbs out of the suspect lights and check the sockets. My front left light was on and off, and so were my rear lights- it was all because my front left socket was all corroded and was causing a short. I think it was a $8 fix oh and while your checking bulbs, get some dielectric grease and put in your sockets before putting the bulbs back in- that'll prevent corrosion in there in the future.
