This is easy fist you need to take out the sid unit thats the info display where the clock is .slide a piece of coat hanger into the two holes until you carnt send them in anymore slightly spread them apart and the unit will slide out do the same process with the radio this can be a bit fiddly but it does come out. after that you can get your hand inside and retrieve hazard warning light

Tail lights and dash lights out, fuse keeps blowing

a fuse burning is due to a short in the circuit ( something is grounding out before the load). the load is the light. heavy amperage draw will blow a fuse, but assuming you didnt wire up 4 big off road lights or a winch to that circuit, its most likely a short.

I have a 2004 Monte Carlo, my turn signals and flashers just stopped working, the fuse is good and all the bulbs are good. Does anyone have any other ideas as to what is causing this problem.

The turn signal switch assembly often causes this problem. If the hazard button is on your steering column it is part of the switch assembly and is called a multi-function switch . If it has a separate hazard button on the dash the can also cause the the same thing to happen. Try holding very slight pressure on the hazard button on the dash while the turn signal is on. If it starts working correctly replace only the the hazard switch. It is usually just snapped into the hole in the dash. If the hazard switch is on the column, than you should replace the multi-function switch. If it is equipped with an airbag, be sure the key is off while working on column. The multi-function switch should not require removal of the steering wheel on this car.

I installed a new radio in my 1998 acura cl but when i put the dash back in place my turning signals and hazards stopped working.....what's wrong and how can i fix it?.....thanks in advance for your help

This means that the plug for the hazard switch is not pushed in all the way. The turn signals will not work when the emergency flashers are disconnected.

I'm not going to pretend that I'm the smartest guy on the block and just knew this. I actually had the center console apart on my 99 3.0CL and had to drive it with everything disconnected. The first thing I noticed was that the turn signals did not work.

I took battery out and put it back in now my hazard light wont go off and it seems like a alarm system went on what do i do to make this stop thanks

did you buy this truck new? does it have an alarm? I dont think it did from the factory, look under the dash for anything that doesnt look factory. if you bought it used it may have one and you never knew it (you would not be the first) you will need to disable it and maybe splice some wires so that it the truck will start.

Headlights and turn signals stopped working

First off, do you have a knob on the dash for the headlights, or do you have a lever on the column that turns them on? If you have the lever on the column, and you can turn on the highbeams by pulling back on the turn signal stalk, and hitting the hazard button turns the flashers on, then chances are the stalk is bad (it's called the combination switch and it's a common failure on the B5 chassis cars (the Passat and Audi A4)).

Try that out - hit the hazard button and see if the hazards work. Pull back on the stalk and see if the high beams come on (they should - toggling like that uses a circuit that is separate from the usual headlight circuits).

Post back up with the results of these checks:

Headlight switch on column or dash?
Highbeams turn on when turn signal stalk is pulled back?
Hazard button activates hazard lights?

Let me know what you find out and I'll be able to tell you more definitely.
