My Hazard Lights come on and can't turn off

Hi Todd:
I'd be thinking that the switch is defective.
The hazard lights are there for a reason so I would not disable them.
My suggestion?
Get the switch checked.

Hazard lghts

? are you sure no one pushed the Button on teh dash that activates the Hazard lights?
Also do you happen to have dual Power sliding doors?
I have a Chrysler T&C and my hazard lights are set to activate when either side power sliding door is activated, if you lights are activated when the doors and not in operation and no one has bumped the hazard button on the dash then only other thing I can think is that the relay that activates the lights is in Dysfunction mode.
Hope this helsp somehow.

Hazard light button wont stay down to keep the hazard light from coming on. if you hold the button down the hazard lights will turn off. It seems like the button has moved up on the shaft.

GM sells a repair kit for the switch. you don't have to remove anything but the switch. I believe instructions come with switch/button kit. first time you do it is pain but not too bad

Shifter button will not push in so I cannot shift

Check to see if your brake lghts come on when you depress the brake pedal. A faulty brake light switch is usually the cause of this.

There seems to be a unwritten rule that the tail lights are on the same wire as the dash board lights ... if you have no dash board lights, neither do you have tail lights. There is a blown fuse somewhere, your job is to find the wire causing the trouble and it is likely at a most inconvenient place near a hinge.

Good luck with your repair.

Hazard lights wont come when you push hazard button turn signals will not work push it again and they work

it sounds like the relay has gone for your hazard lights, when you press the button to turn them on, it will disconect the power to the main indicators hence wont work when hazards pused in, try locating either the hazard flasher unit, or the relay , have you checked the fuses?
