Turn signal issue.
 
I'm having turn signal issues. driver side front turn signal wont blink properly. when i turn on my headlamps, the left turn signal on my dashboard is lit up. the ground looks fine, i took out the bulb and found that water had leaked inside of the socket causing a build up of this dark brown sludge around the connection between the bulb and socket. i cleaned it out but am having the same problem. Any suggestions? maybe a new socket? thanks!

A new socket & bulb, and then a new flasher...

My mom's XJ's turn signals were acting up as well, they would stick or not work, ended up being the flasher going out. THAT WAS FUN to replace. :(

Tucked under the dash on top of the steering column... on a '99.

I didn't take the dash apart though. :D I finaggled my arm up there and felt around. lol

Hey guys, I went with a new socket and that fixed the problem. Thanks for the input, much appreciated.

Can anyone help me with the location of the relay (on a '00 TJ), please? My turn signals won't blink (they stay lit) and I guess it should be the relay (happened on another vehicle and that was the cause).
Thanks.
