Key fab stopped working now emergency flashers continue to go off
The emergency flashers continue to flash when truck is turned off and key removed from the ignition. The door locks will lock and unlock themselves. This problem started out only occassionally when the vehicle was parked and turned off. Now it is continuing when I am driving.

IM NOT SURE.
BUT fix the emergency flasher failure
first using the logic, gee you see its busted,why on fix that and pray.
military doctrine does that too, and then says if 2 things wrong fix the simple one first. (getting lucky save time and dead solders)
10x that if related, and is. ! IMO
noise here,and bad emerg.. kind if same area.
the issue with the emerg. flasher is the contacts can mangle inside
and confuse related circuits. flashers, and warning modules.
Don't know what you are driving but...Most likely your flasher relay is stuck..The emergency lights "flashers" flash using a plug in flasher That works by electrical contact and breaking contact under specified heat..then Continue to cycle until the flasher switch is turned off..the unit is usually located near the fuse box area it is a small round, about 1 inch diameter plug in unit..normally three prong and a silver in color..any auto parts supply will have them pretty cheap..easy to replace once you find it..good luck
Sounds like you turned on your emergency flashers somehow without knowing it. The button should be on your steering column. Otherwise, find the flasher control under the dash by following the clicking noise and unplug it. Then go buy a new flasher control.
Yes your right the emergency flasher switch is the flasher and located in the middle of the dash and it has a triangle on it with a point up and a ! in the middle. It's dark red in color and when depressed lights up red and flashes ( if it's working like it's supposed to ) If the fuse for hazard is blown the flasker won't work on turn singal either. The fuse for the hazard is hot all the time and the turn fuse is only on with the key. You might find that when you find the button and push i thaqt the turn signals work normally and after you find why the flashers doesn't work on hazard then the hazards will work too.
with the hazard switch poped out of the dash ( it just pries out) it'll have lot's of wires one will be hot all the time and another will become hot when you turn the key on. the other wires go to the turn signal switch. If you find that the switch works fine and it still does flash on turn but it does flash on hazard with it on as a hazard go around and look at all of the lights. They have to work on both the frontand the back and the indicators in the cluster ( speedometer head ) If they all work and are bright ( not dim light the running light) The hazard switch is bad as it's the flasher is made into it.
I had the same issue with my remote start on another vehicle, the part that bypasses the code on the key had to be reset. The way we figured it out was everything was normal except the vehicle did not start & the security light flashed rapidly.
I have a similar type of problem. After charging the battery and re-setting the computer, the front and rear lights that would be on in the drving light mode, now are somehow connected to a flasher unit and continue to flash even when the key is off. The only way I've found to stop the lights flashing is to pull the green fuse in the computer box. Looks forward to learning how to fix.
