This pictorial saved me no less than $175, I'm sure. In curiosity, I called the local dealership.. they wanted $147 in labor, plus parts. Picked up the left multifunction switch at a local auto parts store for $60 and had it installed in an hour - that long only because the wiring harness on the right multifunction wouldn't come unstuck. Without this walkthrough, I'd have spent whatever the dealership charged. Thank you, Hardermods!

Indycop So if I understand what Clock Springs are, They are not causing my turn signal switch to stay either up or down after a turn?? Thanks

The clock spring is basically a wire(s) that are wound like a spring that allows power to be feed to the air bag, horn and cruise control switches(if equipt) on the steering wheel. It winds and unwinds as you turn the steering wheel. Other manufactures use a set of contacts that rub on a conductive ring accomplishing the same thing. A bad clockspring can cause the horn, cruise control or air bag not to work, it also can cause rough engine idle and a throttle position sensor voltage high code.

Clock springs are another item that stays backordered, I had to wait a week for Chrysler to get more in to their dealers. (Parts manager said entire network of dealers had backorders on that part) Looking forward to replacing my switch when (not if) it goes out! If every thing is working on the Jeep, I get worried!

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.

Thanks again, this was a great DIY. Really appreciate it.

YHSublime So Hardermods... you just did that write up because you were bored at work?!

Haha, I'm just reading through the threads, and have no need for this (Yet, I probably will one day,) too cool, thanks!
05-17-2011 09:56 PM
Hardermods Happy to help, glad you got it fixed!

jiminmanjr 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!!!

Switch came in! Wrong one...
03-14-2010 10:05 AM
HyperBuzzin 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.

Hardermods 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!!

Contra huh...cool thanks for the heads up!
12-15-2009 12:23 PM
gmcdonald8 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.

Got It!

Thanks everyone for your help. I just ordered the last one from Jeepareus.com

I appreciate the advice and help!!!
12-15-2009 12:11 PM
Contra not to hijack, but i am having a similar problem where i need to replace the switch (and i would), but i don't know how to take off the wheel without setting off the Air Bag
12-15-2009 11:47 AM
rambone 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.
