About 3 weeks ago my rear passenger side turn signal and then break light stopped working. Turn signal was hyper flashing so assumed it was the bulb and that the break must of just blown shortly after. I replaced both bulbs, turn signal on worked for a day and then stopped again completely. Break light never turned back on. Unplugged and plugged all the connections in to make sure nothing was loose.

Next step I figured maybe a fuse. Come to find out that there is no fuse?!? Man this Jeep being a 2018 is 17 years newer than anything else I've had hah.

I'm not one to mess with electrical but after some googling I'm guessing it's either a relay or faulty ground. Now unfortunately all I can find is gen 1 Compass stuff.

Does anyone know/have a link to a video or writeup on how to check either of these?

Could there be any other reason why both of these stopped working?

What bulbs did you use? I installed LED brake lamps and I get the message the brake light and turn signal is out. Also did you have a tow hitch installed? I've had problems with the right turn signal and had to pull the fuse for the wiring harness for the trailer.

Just standard bulbs from Napa. I want to install LEDs when I figure out the whole problem but with a new born my time for tinkering is limited ATM.

I do have a U-Haul hitch installed but it's been on since first week I bought my Compass back in December of 2020. I'll check that fuse and see if it's bad.
