turn signal issues

HELP!! we recently rewired our cj5 with an ez wire harness. great product, but we're having a problem with the turn signals and flashers. rear turn signals work fine in both directions, but both front flashers go on at the same time whenever the turn signals are engaged. we have already installed a new turn signal switch, so we're hoping someone out there can get us rewired properly.

Doc here,

Check to be sure your Turnsignal front wires didn't get swapped for the Park lamps OR hazard flasher at the flasher mount or switch.

You need to Isolate left from right and can't Daisy chain then together in order for the Turn-signals to be effective.

Check and make sure you have a good ground for the front lights...sounds like a faulty electrical ground, and it could be getting an alternate ground, through the other element of the light bulbs ("feedback" of sorts). Cheers!

As above, check your bulbs closely for a crossed filament.

I've had the same problem before with taillights, for me it turned out to be a loose ground wire.

Good Luck,

You might make sure you don't have sigle element (1156) bulbs in double element(1157) sockets. They're not supposed to fit like that, but I've seen it a few times and it can cause the same syptoms you describe.
