Turn signal switch

The switch in the column of my 88 XJ isn't working. I know this is where the problem is because I have hazard lights, and the BU lights work that are on the same circuit. The signals work every once in awhile for a couple blinks if you move the tilt steering in another spot. I have tried to replace one of these in an older car I had and it ended up way to much for my little brain. Has any one replaced this and also does any one know around how much to get it replaced. It has the wipers/wash tied into the same handle that comes out of the column.
Thanks !

Re: Turn signal switch

I just got done replacing that thing about 2 weeks ago. It's called the "multi-function switch". It's not too bad a job and you can grab a new switch at pretty much any autoparts place. If you've got cruise it, mine ran about 48 bucks but I didn't have time to shop around at all. Sounds like the wires in got bent one too many times in yours...

Re: Turn signal switch

I had that same problem, got hazards but turn signal wasn't blinking. Actually it was just a short in the wire. I removed the assembly and kinda straightened up all the wires and when i put it back in it worked. might be all the problem you got.

Re: Turn signal switch

Yep I know exactly what it is. The housing the bulb twists into go bad and need replaced. It has happened on both front signals of mine. Just buy an after market one that will snap into your turn signal lense. Then wire it up to your old wiring. Took me for ever to figure it out though.
