I would remove the tail lamp guards and make sure the mounting bolts are making good contact. It definetly sounds like a grounding issue and those guards are well known for creating poor grounding.

BLK00TJ Everytime I've had that, it was a bad bulb.

Brush guards are well known for bad grounds since the tail lamps ground through the mounting screws. Remove them and ensure the screws are making good grounds.

fonecop1 Mine was acting just like that when I bought my jeep, fast flashing no brake lights and all kinds of crazy stuff. My Son had it at work doing an inspection on it and was troubleshooting the problem when one of his co-workers came by and grabbed the blinker switch and banged it back and forth several times between left turn, off, and right turn. It has been working ever since. I guess when he got rough with the turn indicator switch it must have knocked some corrosion off of the contacts or something. Also the Jeep had been parked for a couple of years under a carport with the sides and back open.

Rubicon2 Had a problem similar to this on my Jeep. Come to find out the trailer plug harness had rubbed just a little bit on the frame allowing moisture to enter and corrode the trailer harness. Just looking at it and inspecting it you would have never known. It wasn't till I noticed the green crap coming out of the wire did I know it was the problem.

Hawk102 When mine does that it is usually a loose ground. It will also do it when the trailer is connected and note grounded properly.

Atthehop It could be a bad bulb, I seen a dual filament bulb cause weird problems because the two filaments in the bulb were touching each other. Bulbs are cheap, buy one and swap each one out one at a time to see if it dtops.

mikes05unlimited Could be moisture in the sockets too, try taking the bulbs out and blowing them out, let them dry and check the seals. Worth a shot and its free

Emerett I recently had this exact problem. My recommendation is check your bulbs, if they're ok, it's probably your switch in the steering wheel.

$40 at auto zone.

neverfastenough1 Sounds like a bad/loose ground. Or ^ that.
11-22-2010 09:33 PM
jakecarroll87 Might be your turn signal switch. Mine would blink wierd like than too and it's cheap and easy to replace takes 5 mins.
