Problem with turn signals and lights
Hello, this is my first post in this forum I looked around to make sure this wasn't posted before and cant seem to find anything about it so here is my problem any thoughts or ideas would be great

About a week ago I accidentally ran over the cord that attaches to a trailer for my jeep it was connected to all the wires for the turn signals in the back of my 88 YJ. I reconnected all the colors back together but for some reason now my right turn signal will barely light up and flickers very quickly. But when I use my hazards both turn signals work fine. If I am driving at night time with my headlight on nothing will work including my brake lights which seem to work fine and also when I am braking my dashboard will light up....

Its all very strange and I have been looking through the wires for a few days trying to see if there are any splices or anything but with no luck

Thanks if you can help that would be awesome

Hmm.. good luck. I'm sure somebody more knowledgeable will have some help. Consider this a bump.

you need to recheck your wiring. unless you damaged something else.

can you disconnect the wires and wire them one at a time to see if something changes? tried rewiring it?

Check the ground wire only - ground it with a clip lead or even jumper cables - then check it...sounds like the ground is weak/failed and is using the other hots to complete the circuit.... Just a thought...

x2 on the ground it is usually the problem.
