ok when driving, and I go to use the blinkers, at first they would blink intermittely, they would flash a couple of times then get out of sequence and stop all together did not matter what direction I was turning. now they don't work at all. decided to check the hazards they also flashed out of sequence now when the jeep is off the hazards won't work at all, but if I start it they work, but no blinkers at all.

1- check the flasher relay ,i sent you location diagram

2- the multi function switch in the column , also i sent you location for it

one of these 2 is the issue, try replacing the flasher relay first , or try spraying electrical contact cleaner at the connection of the relay

in case it is making poor contact
