Hello I have a 2004 a4 turbo 1.8 .. Why does the hazard light switch stay on after vehicle is turned off


Hazard lights or 4 way flashers do not go off when the key is off, you have to turn the switch off or it will stay on until it drains the battery.

The hazard lights come on when the engine is turned off and key removed which results in the the battery losing it's charge. Removing the battery cable is the only way we have found to turn them off.


It could just be a faulty hazard light switch or probably a problem with the lighting control module; in either case, you may need to get it replaced

When i cut the car off, i still have power on my dashboard. what could be the cause. Could a battery with dead cells cause this to happen


Hi!!
No, I don't think it is the battery, it is more likely to be the Ignition Switch, it is the one in charge of cutting all the power when turned OFF. Try lubricating the Ignition Cylinder (where the key goes in), maybe it is not returning all the way to the OFF position, this could cause the battery to drain very fast and if you don't notice it and leave you stranded. Just to be in the safe side, have a pair of Jumper Cables on the trunk and try to fix this problem ASAP. When you turn the engine OFF, turn the key all the way back and then pull it out, some of us just turn the key and as soon as we hear the engine shutting off, pull out the key, thats when this sort of problems begin.
Good Luck and Merry Christmas!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

2006 G6 GT sedan, was parked a while and battery died. Replaced the battery and started engine no problem, ran for a half an hour. Next morning tried to start but wouldn't even turn over. Plenty of power...


YOU NEED AN AUTO ELECTRICIAN TO LOCATE THE BATTERY DRAIN & OR BAD CONNECTION . THE TRUNK LIGHT MAY BE STAYING ON WHEN THE TRUNK IS SHUT, ALSO THE ALTERNATOR CAN CHARGE THE BATTERY, WHILE THE ENGINE IS RUNNING, BUT IF A DIODE IS BAD IT CAN DRAIN THE BATTERY WHEN THE ENGINE IS OFF

The hazard lights are sticking on and draining the battery


Hi.

Replace the hazard lights switch.

Series 3 hazard light switch malfunctions are quite common. The switch may not work, or like in your case, it may short and drain the battery.You can find the procedure to remove the switch summarily described on this forum.

The switch can be tested disconnecting it from wires, and using an Ohmmeter on its contact to ensure it is opening and closing fine, and not sticking.

If the switch is fine, wiring, alarm system and crash sensor must be tested. The most common reason for this kind of problem is the switch itself.

beeping maybe light on warning instead of key warning. Brake lights go through the hazard and turnsignal switch. Hazards may not be flashing due to bad flasher, but may be turned on. Most likely possibility is hazard switch contact in combination switch (hazard and turnsignal switch in one unit). Unplug the turnsignal switch at the bottom of the steering column and see if the problems go away, and you will know if that is it.
