Blinker problem

Well,

My right blinker is flashing rapidly and my dashboard turn signal stays lit and a warning tone constantly rings. When I turn off my headlights the tone goes off. I have no idea. I changed the rear bulb and front parking bulb. Any help would be great

Sean

Could be the turn signal switch in the column is dirty or wearing out

Add some blinker fluid. Sorry, couldn't help myself.

The problem is in the right front, probably the side marker. Check that bulb then the sockets (for corrosion) & wiring connections at both the parking light & side marker.

You might want to check your bulb sockets to ensure you have all of your contacts still there. I had a similar problem and it drove me nuts tracking down the issue. My contacts on one side were so corroded that when I changed a burnt out bulb one of them fell out. Jeeps tend to freak out when the electrical isn't just right. I only found the issue when I went to check the socket with my multimeter. Replaced the socket and all was right in my world again. Good luck!

The socket was the issue. I messed around with the bulb socket and found that when the bulb is set all the way into the socket it doesn't light. I pulled it out just a tad an the sensor and fast blinking stopped. Thank u all for your input.

That's awesome it was a simple fix! I would also suggest dielectric grease for all of your sockets. Happy jeeping!

Those front bulb sockets burn up left and right and in my opinion are Highly over priced from Jeep.

Beat me to it! I was going to say to make sure you check your blinker fluid! While your down there checking blinker fluid levels, may want to repack your muffler bearings.
