Brad :

Hello welcome to JustAnswer, My name is Brad and I will be assisting you

Customer :

hello

Brad :

Hi, I'm gathering some info for you now.. Just a sec, Thanks!!

Customer :

ok

Brad :

Have you checked fuse 23 inside on the fuse bank?

Customer :

yes

Brad :

Ok, and the turn signal relay you replaced was it the silver circle type you replaced?

Customer :

no, it was located under the stering wheel black square with 5 prongs.

Customer :

and the manual says the turn signal fuse is #12 10 amp

Brad :

May I have the last 8 of your VIN to make properly look up your vehicle? Thanks!

Customer :

give me a sec

Brad :

Take your time..

Customer :

XL677316

Brad :

Thanks!

Brad :

You are correct.. Can you also check fuse 20..

Customer :

that says it is my trailer tow package

Customer :

i check it anyway give me a sec

Brad :

It supplies 12v to combination flasher..

Brad :

Is this the relay you replaced?

Customer :

yes that looks like it. and fuse 20 is empty.

Brad :

Does the empty slot have 2 metal prongs inside it where the fuse connects?

Customer :

yes i think so, but there has never been a fuse in there. I don't have a hitch to tow.

Brad :

That is interesting because that is the wiring for your Jeep.. Let me search for another..

Brad :

This also shows fuse 20..

Customer :

? I have the manual here in front of me and it says fuse 20 is Trailer Tow Package

Brad :

If it isn't too much trouble can you remove the relay you installed and check pin 2 for 12v? That will show us if it is getting 12v like it should..

Customer :

well I don't have any thing to check it with. I already instaled a new one it did not work and i returned it already. I might just have to take it somewhere.

Brad :

Nevermind.. If the hazzards are working it's getting voltage.. And since you allready replaced the relay it looks like the multi-function switch is faulty.. If you had a test light we could confirm that..

Customer :

ok thanks for chatting and the help. I am sure I will figure it out sometime

Brad :

You are more then welcome.. If you need anymore assistance feel free to ask..
