Default signal woes....

Hi every one, Having a problem with the signal lights on my 86 MJ with the parking lights and/or headlights off they work fine including the hazards but when I turn the headlights on only the passenger side signal works. And I try my driver side signal it will stay stuck on but once I turn the lights off its fine. Also I changed the bulbs and both the hazard and turn signal relays. Any replies are appreciated. Thanks

TSS in the column, or the connection....Its a PIA to get to, but your better off in the long run to just replace it. Its an Early GM style tilt column with a jeep Steering wheel.

Hold off on the whole switch thing.

You replaced the flasher? Which one? There's 2 of them. One for turn signals. One for hazards.

Click on the link below and refresh the connector featured in the photo:

I also noticed that one of my turn signal connector was messed up. So i cut the wires and installed a new connector was all good. ( I had the same problem) Check front and rear turn signal... either connector can be bad

I replaced the front connector because it was full of junk and the bulb was kind of rusted in but no avail. Tomorrow Im going to replace both rear bulb connecters and pray, if not the TSS
