Having a multitude of electrical issues with my 2008 jeep patriot.

1. When I turn the vehicle on, driver side headlight just automatically turns on. Then I have to manually turn my headlights on, no matter what time of day, so it looks like I don't have a headlight out. When I flip on the high beams, the passenger side headlight goes out.
2. Front driver side turn signal is not working
3. Rear driver side tail light not working, turn signal does work
4. Rear passenger side turn signal does not work

Replaced all the bulbs, no change. What the hell is going on???

OK, I guess we need to invoke the "G" word--GROUNDS! Nearly all electrical problems that are unfounded are due to a missing or intermittent ground(s). There's a passel of them that meet under the battery box, so I'd check there first, then go to each light ass'y and make sure the ground there is referenced to the battery. Good luck and please keep the forum posted upon your findings and repairs.
