Fix

I am pointing at the part I believe is worn down.

You can really see the part has been worn down.

I am really close to fixing this issue. I have found a way repair the existing switch but once I found the problem I had to put it back together so I could drive to class. I know this is not helpful yet but I think this can be repaired. I know the pictures are definitely helpful.

If this fix can be done it will not be the easiest solution. The part from the dealership cost $260 this is why I want to fix the existing switch. I want to keep my jeep nice and running another switch somewhere else would just bug me.

Danno6102 Easy parcheesey! $52 at Autozone. Toughest part was getting the damn plug out! then trying to figure out why my high beam indicator light was no longer working, finally to realize that it runs off the accessory fuse I pulled when I took the doors off.

Ha! yea, that was my temporary fix. Just ended up pulling the fuse for now. Glad it's an easy fix. I'll do the search & try to get her replaced this week. Thanks for the help!

sevenservices did you get any water in them or your steerting column???

Just curious... if so, it could only be temporary until it dries out.

I did mine about two weeks ago. It took me just shy of an hour, but I also cleaned all the pieces that are visible. It's not a hard job at all

Good luck!!

Hopey Mine did same. Replacement was about $55 from Autozone...takes about 30 minutes to swap out. Remember to switch the relay from the back of the old one to the new one!

bmanrkg3 Malfunction switch def. I had the similar issue. Gave me an excuse to get an optima battery :-D

Jeepin9910 Sounds like the multifunction switch is bad. My grandma's PT Cruiser did the same thing.

fog lights won't shut off

factory fog lights won't shut off unless I turn the turn signal on. Or push in on the lever. Any ideas? Just started.
