Hazard warning lights activate when engine is turned off and car is parked. Any ideas please? Battery went dead due to hazard lights flashing all night


Sounds like a alarm system. I had an old car that did that untill I hit lock or unlock on the RF remote

if not check the Emergency flasher switch or maybe a relay. Of course make sure the button is not on. Try toggling on and off.

No signals or flasers


Check fuse block. Electrical always boils down to fuses.

I have a 2005 renault grand scenic that recently went in the garage for work and has come out with the 'parking brake failure' message on the dashboard. The handbrake is electric and is working perfectly...


A renault tech told me how to reset the electronic parking brake on my grand scenic without going to dealer, this works if you have had to pull the yellow emergency handle in rear which i have had to do this week.

Turn your ignition on without starting engine, have drivers door open and press lock button on keycard
put keycard in reader and press start button for 5 seconds.
pull large part of manual handbrake handle and push small button with red light without letting go of larger handle and you should hear the handbrake motor reset!

That should be it!

ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS WITH TURN SIGNALS,EMERGENCY FLASHERS,PARKING LIGHTS


this car have DRL? day light running lamps?>? option
or manditory in canada. do tell !

so the fuses blew again, and you didnt look?
id fix either park/ hazzards.first
both work with key in pockets for EMERANGACY uses, even
when 100 miles from car, keys in pocket, by DESIGN. (all cars)
so due to that fact its a very simple system.
but in 2007, they makers do all they can to make it more complex
than ever necessary, (saves money with copper)
the 2 features are hot all the time, that means they wire to the
battery directly with ONLY a fuse, to stop fires.
so id bet it blew the fuse (got trailer wiring hacks in back>?) collision damage not fixed right>?
do you have the factory trailer option?????

park seems best., easier
it has 2 fuses to the rear.
the PARK relay closes, and powers the fuse and then lamps.
so both cant blow. left and right are Fuse 7 and 9
the BCM , (body brain puter) energizes the park relay
so seems its not.
my guess is the BCM has lost power.

in the dealer they can scan for BCM errors. and say fast what is wrong.

the list for PARK dead.
1. Ineffective or missing relay. 1. Test and replace park lamp relay if required. 2. Ineffective control circuit. 2. Test and repair open park lamp relay control circuit if required. 3. Ineffective switch. 3. Test and replace multi-function switch if required. 4. Ineffective BCM inputs or outputs. 4. Use a diagnostic scan tool to test the BCM inputs and outputs. Refer to the appropriate diagnostic information.
here is my list
all park lamps burned out, (no way) but had it happen in 1980.....ask how? (alternator went nuts to 30v)
relay park missing or bad. (pray)
the park switch( in combo-mult- section switch is bad) nah.
The combo failed to tell BCM of this state change (comm fails)
the BCM failed to hear the command.
the BCM is bad or lost power (fuses)
the BCM failed to close the park relay.

the BCM has 3 power fuses. fues 34 is hot all time, id bet that fuse
allows the BCM to turn on parks, at any time.
others are key power, fuse 22, and 13. to BCM

the back unlocks doors, and does so via FOBs. car locked and parked and no key in ignition, so again, fuse 34 rears ugly head

i hang hat on 34, but got tired, if reading 50 pages of power distrabution and comms.
it is very complex car, and one of the first cars to do this....

I have 2003 Pontiac sunfire it is stuck in park-is there a reset button---there have been no fluid leaks


Usually the problem is the brake switch or the shift lock solenoid. You may be able to take the shifter out of park by trying it before you turn the key to the on position.
Check your owners manual to see if there is an emergency release.

Flasher relay continually clicks, even when the turn indicators aren't on. I replaced it today and the new one clicks too. On several occasions I have lost all all electrical power, sometimes briefly...


Sounds like you need to replace the 4-Way emergency flasher button because it is stuck causing your problem. Disconnect that flasher button and that should solve the problem. If it does replace it and your problem will be solved.

Your Flasher button is either worn out or stuck. Try clicking it on and off a few times and see if that works. If it doesnt, you will need to refer to your service manual and trouble shoot hte electrical

Brake lights quit working on the driver and passenger sides but the top middle lighgt works.running light and back up lights work no blowns fuses good bulbs. very puzzeling!


I recently had this problem,it appears to be in the emergency flasher button.at first no brake lights but center one worked. the emergency button was stuck and hard to move but once i got it loose i had all brake lights, so thinking my problem was solved i checked all lights and then found i had no signal lights, i went bach to the flasher button because it was still very hard to move and pressed down further and all lights work now so i think this will cure most turn and brake signal problems. the flasher button is rarely used and collects dust so it starts to stick and when you dust your dash or bump the button it will stick between contacts and the lights stop working. hope this helps!!
