Something is wrong with my turn signals. When I turn left it works fine. When I turn right it comes on as if my hazards are on an one of the bulbs doesn't work. I tried replacing the bulb but it still doesn't work and the problems still there. Also when I turn my hazards on or turn right my dash board and gauges blink with the signals. What is wrong and what do I need to do

Hello,

it sounds like the turn signal switch is bad but to be sure here are the blinker wiring diagrams and a guide to help test it.

Check out the diagrams (Below). Please let us know what you find. We are interested to see what it is.

Hi I just bought my Jeep today and while I was driving on the highway the air bag light came on on the dash and right after that came on my speedometer when all the way down to 0 and went back up to 60. The air bag light then turned off. Shortly after that about 5 minutes the same thing happened plus the Cruise light came on for a aplit second and the RPM shot up to the 3 then came back down to 2.I'm hoping it's just bad fuses but I have no clue. Also my left blinker doesn't blink, it just stays turned on and also the arrow on my dash doens't blink. Could you please help me! Thank you so much for your time. - Angie

Sounds like you have an issue in your wiring. Fuses would not cause this as fuses just pass electricity and at an overload they blow and stop conducting electricity. I do not see this being a fuse problem. W ould take it to a shop that can scan the computer and check for codes first, though this will not fix the problem it might direct the mechanic in the right direction. Let us know and thanks Curt

Bad bulb socket or bad ground. The front turn and park light work?

Yes front turn stays steady but does not blink all parking lights work. I was thinking ground because I put a test light on it and it has power. Should I take the housing off and clean the screws? All the wires seem to be ok.
