Question about 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

I have a 97 Grand Cherokee. My left turn blinker flashes quickly in the rear and not at all in the front. It appears the left front bulb is burnt out. How do i replace it?

How do I replace the bulb on the front left blinker? How do I take the front left covering case off to get at the bulb? Where is a good place to buy a replacement bulb?

Pop the hood and look at the top of the headlight capsule. you should see a single 7mm bolt somewhere in the middle. remove the bolt completely it should be about 6 inches long. once the bolt is removed then use a large flat screwdriver and carefully pry the headlight capsule out from it retaing clips. once the capsule is out then you have 100% access to the bulbs

SOURCE: Intermittent left turn signal - 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Generally, if a bulb has failed or is making only poor contact, the blink rate will increase since the standard blinker relay uses a thermal strip heated by current flow to the bulbs and when it is too low, it blinks rapidly and briefly.
You still have the front bulbs to check and maybe pulling the fuse for that circuit and plugging it back in might remove some corrosion from the blades.
The flasher relay is probably OK since this would affect both sides.

SOURCE: how to replace timing cover gasket on a '97 jeep grand cherokee

Pull the alternator brackets and front engine brackets off until you get to the water pump. You will also need to remove the fan shroud and then the fan. Remove the water pump and then you will see an aluminum cover and that will be your timing cover. remove the cover and clean all the gasket off the engine and the cover. use a razor blade, and make sure there in no oil or grease on the parts where the gasket lies. Put your gasket on, bolt the cover back on with the new gasket and repeat the teardown process in reverse.

My left front blinker flashes quickly. - The left


Check for power at the socket. If there is no power I would suspect the flasher relay wich supplies power to each bulb individually after it gets the right or left signal from the switch.

I'd start with a new flasher relay (they're cheap). If not that, then go to those lamp sockets and check for corrosion. I had issues similar w my 95 laredo...it was the flasher.

After i use the left or right signal, i hear a rapid clicking noise in the dash. is it the flasher?


If the blinker light on your dash also flashes rapidly it generally will mean that one of your blinker bulbs is burnt out. Try each direction and check the front and rear bulbs yourself. It is not impossible to have burnt out a bulb on both sides, so check them all carefully. If the lights themselves flash rapidly, or do not flash at all, then yes change out your flasher, which you should be able to get from any local parts store for a reasonable cost.

Fast Blinker


Usually a fast turn signal means that there is a light out. You should probably check all of your lights, including back-up lights, and turn signals. If there is one out then replacing the burnt out bulb should fix the problem.
