Well my son thought it would be a good idea to put his 07 Jeep JK through water that reached just below the door panel when parked. He does have a 2 inch lift with 33's. Well, as he drove of course water ended up getting inside the jeep because there was so much water on the road and he eventually had about 3 inches of water inside the Jeep 🤦‍♂️ so of course everything got wet. The good news is that his younger brother recorded the "water crossing"...the bad news...we had to remove everything from the interior as it was all wet, seats, carpets, center console and removed all plugs to let it all dry up. Now, all the exterior lights act as strobes and turn on and off as they want to, turn signals don't work and the dash dims randomly. I already dried all electrical connectors inside and added di-electric grease, but did not solve anything. The Jeep works fine engine wise and a/c works fine too, just the lights that are the issue. Could this be a clock spring issue? or maybe a turn signal switch issue?

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks

Oh bummer... you wrote exterior lights, did you go through all the connectors in the engine bay, and at the back of the jeep? If there was 3" of water inside the Jeep, the water splashed way higher than that all around the engine bay, might have gotten in the connectors at the back also. At least the car apparently works otherwise, so TIPM is probably not fried.
