What causes my turn signals to work when they want to? on 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Work fine then just stop. Can push down on flasher and release and they will work for a little longer.

Could be that the turn signal switch or flasher relay is going bad. You can try cleaning the contacts on the back of the turn signal switch first.
I will try that and thank you!
