Hey Guys!
So I noticed on a cold morning that my right turn signal stopped working. It still makes the ticking sound, but the light on the speedo doesn't flash. I checked all the bulbs and they're good. Also, the right taillight still flashes, but nothing from the front right or side marker light.
I didn't change or add anything to the CJ that could be connected to this. It literally stopped working overnight.
Any Ideas??

I would check your grounds. They corrode over time and wreak all kinds of havoc.

Lamp buckets ground to the body.

Work the turn sig lever up and down a couple dozen times to clean the contacts.
Have you ck'd the voltage at the light socket?

Thanks for the feedback guys! Especially from LG. Good to see you're back in action.

I'm going to try to look at the grounds this weekend. One bit of new information. I turned on the headlights today, and ALL the lights turned on, including the right front lights where the blinker doesn't work.

Sounds like a ground ( rust ) problem to me. Had that with a 96 Cherokee.
