TJ Turn Signal Switch on Backorder

Can anyone help? I am trying to track down a new or good used headlight/turn signal switch for my 05 TJ. The Chrysler part number is 5016709AD. My dealer said there are over 1200 on backorder in the U.S.

Autozone is on backorder. They get it from the same supplier as Chrysler. Advanced Auto does not even list it.

My switch broke in High Beam mode. I tried to break it open and manually switch it back to low beam but no luck.

Any advice on sources to buy one are welcomed. Thanks

Might help if you let us know if you have fog lights or not.
I often see the switch, w/o fogs on eBay. About $80.
W/ fogs, I don't see as often, but they are there on occasion. About $90

Had the problem with my 03 Jeep's turn signal's not working when I bought it. Got the turn signal switch from jeepsareus.com for $145. Like you everybody had it on back order!!! I needed the turn signals to work to get a brake tag. Also after I changed the switch it still didn't work, the fuse was burnt under the hood. Everything's working fine now.

Contra, there are two phillips head screws on the underside of the plastic steering column cover. Remove those, and the steering column cover comes apart in 2 halves. You do not need to remove the steering wheel.

Just ordered one off of jeep4x4center.com They did not have them on their website but I IM'd them and they were able to help me out. They said they only had one left...sorry

Maybe they have another stashed, you never know. Of course I ended up ordering 250 bucks worth of crap but hey, everyone is a winner!

Well today was slow at the shop so I got out the camera and took mine out for something to do!

Tools needed:
Torx 20 Screwdriver
Torx 10 Screwdriver
Phillps Head Screwdriver


Remove the steering column opening cover from the instrument panel.




Remove the two screws that secure the lower steering column shroud to the upper shroud



If the vehicle is equipped with the optional tilt steering column, move the tilt steering column to the fully lowered position and leave the tilt release lever in the released (down) position.

Remove both the upper and lower shrouds from the steering column.



Disconnect the cross body wire harness connector for the left multi-function switch from the connector receptacle on the back of the switch.



Disconnect the cross body wire harness connector for the right multi-function switch from the connector receptacle on the back of the switch.



Remove the two screws that secure the multi-function switch assembly to the upper steering column housing Using a Torx - 20 bit



Remove the multi-function switch assembly from the upper steering column housing.



Remove the two small screws that secure the right multi-function switch to the left multi-function switch mounting housing. Using a Torx - 10 bit



Grasp the right multi-function switch control stalk firmly and pull the switch toward the right far enough to disengage the alignment pins on the top (1) and bottom (2) of the right switch housing from the alignment ramps on the left multi-function switch mounting housing.
Remove the right multi-function switch from the left multi-function switch.





Remove the combination flasher from the connector receptacle on the back of the left multi-function switch




Common step missed by most is the last one, Make sure you swap the flasher relay!!

Nice write-up!
All in all, this isn't anything that hard to do, and there is no worries about setting off the air bag.
When I was trouble shooting why I couldn't get my interior lights to come on with the switch (but did come on when the door opened or turned the key off), I just got my tools and went at it with no instructions. Pretty straight forward job. Just take your time.

This thread saved me some major headaches and cash. I followed the pictures exactly as above, and got the job done in 45 minutes (it would have been faster if I had paid attention to remove the flasher from the old and place it in the new).

THANK YOU!!!

Well when I did it, there happened to be multiple posts on here for the same concern, ie replacing it. Since I had a dead day in the shop I figured what the heck it won't take too long so yeah I did it lol.

My turn signal lever does not return to center after making a turn and my steering wheel returns to center, but my signals do work, I just have to remember to turn them off Do I need to replace the multi-function switch or is it something else?
Thanks for any help and sorry to hi-jack the thread!!!

Sounds like its time for a new switch. Mechanism has gone bad.

By the way, I know people have been able to find this part but I bought it on eBay from this seller: eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

$35 with free shipping. Part is a perfect fit, installed mine today. I think that is a darn good price! Wanted to share it with all of you Jeepers.

Now if I could just figure out my darn turn signal problems.... the replacement switch didn't solve it.

BTW, since the turn signal switch I pulled out of my car wasn't causing the problem with my blinker chronicled here: http://www.wranglerforum.com/f5/erra...ff-122058.html (can someone please help!??? No one has responded), I am selling my old (but working) turn signal for $15 + shipping. PM me if interested otherwise I will put it in the classifieds.

Cheers.
