The reason I'm replacing it is because there's a short somewhere that makes the factory fog lights flash when you hit a bump or wiggle the switch, even when the headlights are off. I ended up taking the fog lights off until I can get a new switch.

Has this happened to anyone else before?

Iceman What year is your jeep? I replaced both the turn signal switch and wiper switch on my 97. On mine they are separate switches. You can look in the for sale section for someone parting out a jeep. Also the neon has the same switch except the hazard switch is shaped slightly differently. The neon ones can be fairly prevalent in junkyards. However if It were me before I spent the $$ I would remove the switch and shoot it full of electronic contact cleaner and blow it out with an air compressor or canned air duster. It may help things out.
