This answer was rated:

98 jeep grand cherokee, turn signals are not working, flashers come on but do not flash, I can not find the flasher relay. need help



The flasher is in the junction block, located on the passenger side kick panel. Replace it and you should be all set.

Any further questions?

replaced relay / turn signals do not work
our power locks had been turning on and off a while back, I do not know if that is related or not. currently the power locks are working and not tuning on and off.



Do the turn indicators come on in the instrument cluster but do not blink?


Do the turn lights come on the outside but just not blink?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
no turn signal indicators inside or out on either side



Check the fuses shown below that are in the same panel as the flasher. If the fuses are ok, then the multi function switch (turn signal switch) will need replaced.

Good Job!

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
do you think the power locks turning on and off had anything to do with the fuse blowing or any idea of what may have caused it to short out?



The locks are are on a separate circuit so they won't affect the turn signals. As far as why it blew,,,they just do after time. If it does blow again (doubtful) i would think the multi function switch to be at fault.

thank you for your help

My Pleasure!


Thank YOU for asking!



Customer: replied 6 years ago.
could you tell me what circuit to check for the power windows. I don't see a fuse so I assume it must be a circuit breaker or relay.



It's doubtful it would be the circuit breaker, if they go bad, usually they stop working all together. Commonly it is the body control module but would require some very in depth testing to find the fault. If you can follow a wiring diagram, click here to download it.
