Phantom Starting in P and N turn signal also

I have an 89 wrangler laredo 4.2 with all options. A/c p/s tilt cig lighter 5 gauge cluster. I just had a new engine and tranny put in. I had the neutral saftey switch double checked on the tranny and the ignition replaced and the phantom starting is NOW in my turn signals as well as P and N (starter is engaged) but not in any drive or reverse gear. I have checked the relays I could find and they are o.k.. I bought a book but it is worthless and I cannot find anything showing where the starter relays and ignition relays are located. Any help on that or has anyone else had this gremlin?

You have an open circuit somewhere it seems. Or, a wire not grounded that needs to be grounded. I'm thinking beyond relays to a glitch in the bundled wiring under dash, or if you luck out, the headlight harness which is easiest to trace.

This was the case for me with phantom brake lights/rear turn signals. Poor grounding on the undercarriage of factory wires.
