Headlights, blinkerhazards

Hey, I just bought a 1998 jeep wrangler tj.
..the left blinker works sometimes and the hazards act up. I bought a turn signal switch but I don't know if that is the problem. I am not mechanically inclined lol. The headlights work most of the time but sometimes I have to pull the headlight knob 3 or for times for them to come on. I am determined to fix the problems I am having on my own with the help from you guys on the forum. Any suggestions or pointers would be awesome! Thanks!

The multifunction switch controls blinkers, hazards, and hi/lo beams. Easy to swap it out, likey the issue.

I agree, I had to replace mine a few months back. For me if I turned the left signal on all the break lights would flash.

Both the multi-function and the headlight switches are easy to change out, and are common wear items.

Duralst parts any good? I switched out the turn signal switch and now the taillight and blinker bulb doesn't function. But it fixed the original issue. Changed the bulb and it's not the bulb. Wtf

Duralast from autozone? I generally avoid.

The one I installed from advance Auto has worked well for a few years now.

Autozone is okay for motor oil and other fluids, but for parts, i would shop elsewhere. Napa is usually pretty good.

Go to NAPA get this...The 98's are notorious for using a lot of fluid. Congrats on the Jeep!
