I have the exact same problem and my husband rebuilds cars but we are lost. I love how things go wrong and today mechanics from yesterday cannot fix it cause you have to go to the Jeep dealer and pay 100.00 an hour. I have a passenger window that does not go up or down, broken part..replace value $350. Duct tape works fine..

My 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee has left signal that works only if a jiggle it just right and of course that makes my headlights flash at people ahead of me. I've had all 4 side windows get repaired, one at a time! My heater has never worked well. I had a 1999 Jeep before this one and no problems at all.

I was willing to try anything to get my left signal to work if I didn't have to take back to a repair shop. Just now went outside turned on the car and my left signal, then pressed the flashers on and off several times and it worked! Left signal works every time, well, so far. Thanks

dbh is a genius. The fix to turn the left signal on and turn on and off the hazard switch worked like a charm, at least for now. Thanks! You got me up and running. Both signals are working fine now.

I'm having the same problem with my 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee. My blinkers and ac just went out on me at the same time as I was driving.I replaced the flasher and it still does the same thing,although my hazards do work. I checked all of the fuses under the dash and found one that was blown. I replaced it (10 amp)fuse and still no dice. I checked all of the fuses in the engine compartment and they are all good. Can anyone help me with this?
David, it appears I have exact same problem. Did you get this resolved, and if so, how. Many thanks.

I haven't noticed any problem with my BMW. That's why I got a BMW in the first place; quality buy, for a quality price. Do you know where I could find redmond BMW repair? http://www.redmondeuropean.com

My mechanic found my P/N switch (park/neutral?) was causing a short knocking out fuse number 20. A $20 part + labor fixed the problem.

Just read this and thought there is no way this could fix it but seemed like an easy fix so I tried it and it works perfectly now! Thanks dbh!
Good call works like a champ now

Ok I have a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the same no left turn signal problem and I tried pulling and turning blades on the flasher relay and so far the blinker is working just fine. So Thank you guys for the info. I will post again if I have any more issues.

Same problem here. A dealer claimed it required a $1000 module replacement. Needless to say that wasn't rushing into and the dealer is on my "watch list" as this is likely to be incompetent or unscrupulous behavior. Reviewing the service manuals, it looks like the flasher or related wiring is likely the cause. Things interact and since it is intermittant, one will not know immediately whether or not the fix was successful.
I will post the results of what I find this week when I spend some real time trying to fix it.
I did the module replacement for the $1000 from the dealer and the problem was fixed for about 90 days. Just past the warranty for the work. I now have the same problem and am considering doing the relay replacement. I have heard the pn is 4686094.

I havea 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 4.0L automatic transmission. My blinkers and blower motor stopped working at the same time. I checked the fuses and the HVAC 20 fuse was blown and kept blowing. The problem turned out to be a short in a wire going into the oil pan of the transmission. If you look at the drivers side of the transmission you can see plug going into the top of the transmission oil pan. The insulation on the wires had worn out and the bare wires were touching, causing a short and as a result the HVAC fuse to blow.

I cleaned the wires with a paper towel and wrapped the exposed wires in electrical tape. Viola signals and blower motor works.

on my 2003 jeep grand cherokee the interiot lights stay on when i shut the engine off and stay on even past the time allocated for them to shut off.the only way i can shut them off is to put the switch on the turn signal handle in the bottom position,then i don't have any dash lights.I don't know what all the 5 positions on that switch are for. i can't find anything in the owners manuall explaining whay they do in any of the positions.
