Blinkers/indicators, how do yours flash?

So I have spotted this weird thing where if I indicate Left, the indicator flashes left, If I indicate right, it blinks one left and then starts flashing right!

My other half was following me and she said she noticed it too, so bit odd.

All the VWs I have ever had the indicator stalk effectively earths the flasher relay to the relavent side of lights, this feels like thats not how this Jeep works.
mines a 2011 Compass, so newer.

What does your newer jeep do?

I've never checked that on either of my Patriots or either of my Compasses. However, I can't imagine its supposed to do that. All I can think of is a basketball player who "fakes left and goes right." He of course wants to confuse the other players; you don't want to do that on the roads!

I did have a utility trailer that when I applied the brakes all the lights went out. The lights all checked out OK one at a time when I did my driveway inspection. Like you, my Wife was following me and brought it to my attention. Better Her than the boys in blue.

Mine turned out to be a grounding problem as you suspect your is. Its much easier to find an electrical problem on a trailer than in a vehicle. Good luck and when you find the problem please post for the benefit of others. That's why we're here.
