Right Turn Signal on when Brake Pushed?

What in the world is causing this? When I push the brake the right turn signal lights up (Front,Rear and Dash), doesn't blink just comes on. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Nope, Just the steering wheel cover...two screws from underneath. then two or three screw holding the stalk on the column.

common issue with older TJ's, the contacts in the turn signal switch get dirty/ wear out.

Try cleaning the contacts first...then if no go....replace the stalk.

I would also check your tail light wires in the rear corners of the jeep. Mine were kinda loose and caused this same problem.

Check the bulbs one may be shorted internally.

Yep, same problem but with left. It only happens some times, and goes away if I jiggle the turn signal switch. I'll get around to fixing it one of these days.
