Usually not. Both are on separate circuits. Directionals are only on when the key is in the on position, Hazards are on (hot) all the time. If I remember correctly, they both share a common junction though as they pass through the directional switch in the top of the steering column. You will need to do some testing: fuses, and wiring to trace power. Also check power at the flasher sockets. If you just bought it, be aware that a common "on the road fix" for a bad directional flasher is to swap it with the one for the hazards. In that case, when the directional flasher that was swapped fails, both would in fact test as bad.
It needs a new flasher. I just had it done on my 99 two weeks ago.
Were you using the hazards to try and trip the turn signals? What a pain in the ****!
The flasher will cost like 20 buck to install at Merchants.
100% sure of this solution
Sometimes the hazards run on a different circuit than turn signals. There is probably a fuse that needs to be replaced. If no fuse, make sure that the turn indicator is working properly. After that look for broken wires along the circuit.
The fact that other than the turn signals themselves, everything else is working indicates to me that htere is something manually mechanical, not electrical casuing your problem. If you replaced the switch mechanism it is possible that in doing so the lever itself was set out of position and cannot operate the signals as it should, or the contact points on the switch itself are not meeting the way they should when the switch does go into position.
turn signal flasher module or turn signal switch. I usuall try to wiggle teh column switch or move it slowly up and down, back and forth to help determine if it has a bad contact. if i cant get a failure (or turn signal) that way I begin the testing at the base of the column. the flasher module is a common failure on those and isnt unreasonably priced. if i had no diagnostic procedure i would try that first. oh yea, try turning the hazards on and off rapidly several times. the signal goes through the four way switch.
