Turn Signals, wipers, radio problem
 
Since I bought my 97 Jeep in 2003 I've had numerous problems with my turn signals, wiper and cd player not working. I don't drive the jeep much-- only put 12,000 miles on it in 7 years. Every year I have this problem when I'm ready to drive it in the summer. The dealer replaced the lock cylinder once, then the ignition switch, then its the r/f socket, then sending unit, etc..
I am at a loss here and don't know why this continues to happen every summer. Has anyone had this issue with their jeep? Any ideas on how to fix this once and for all?

all 3 problems happen at once?????????

Yes... All three are currently not working. Through out the years, sometimes its the turn signals alone, but mostly all three don't work at the same time.

yeah mine does the same thing I have just learned to live with it

It sounds like a classic case of a bad ignition switch (key cylinder), but since you had it replaced I don't know, unless the replacement was bad. Try turning the key all the way back and then forward a few times then try the signals and radio. Good luck.

The heater and/or A/C isn't affected at all?

Funny I am having a simmilar problem today but my heat wont work either and my airbag light is on... I just baught it so back to the SELLERS SHOP!!!! I am not dealing with this shit but would love to know what is the problem.....

This issue gets even better and I think it is a bad ground... When I got in the jeep this afternoon the radio, wipers and turn signals worked but the wiper would not go into high mode and the heater fan wont work.... I love bad grounds and they shop I got it from will TOO!!!!

I would bet money it's a bad ignition switch. When I first bought mine same problem, including the air bag light staying on. It would happen about every other time I drove it. I took it to the dealer and even they couldn't figure it out. Finally I figured it out on my own. The switch (the thing the key goes in to start the jeep) is about $75.00.

Hummm.... I appreciate the advice but let me ask you this... Now I dont have any problems with it at all but the blower motor and wiper motor wont come on in high.... I havent had any other things not work since the other morning. Wouldnt the lack of high voltage be a bad ground? Again I am not saying it isnt a ignision switch but I want to give all the info... Let me know what you think...

I'm certainly no expert with electrical, you said you took it back to the sellers shop. I would definitely tell them to check the ignition switch first. It controls a lot of the electricals, and every time you turn it on and off the computer resets a lot of things. Good luck.

Thanks for your help!

He did say in the first post they changed the ignition switch. I guess it's possible that one is bad too, or maybe something wasn't plugged back in properly?
