SOURCE: Replace hazard switch behind dash

I had the same problem this weekend and fixed it. I experienced the same difficulty. You need to remove a couple covers to allow good access to the back of the hazzard switch. First remove the vent that is located just ot the right of the hazzard switch. There are 2 metal clip at the botton side of the vent. Push up on the clips with a screw driver and pull the vent out. Next remove the black plastic bezzel for the gauges. The bezzel is held in place with 2 screws. Now you should have access to the hazzard switch from the left and right side. The hazzard switch mounts (clips) into a black plastic bracket. I was not able the remove the hazzard swich by pressing on the 2 clips, so I removed the 3 screws that held the bracket to the dash and removed the entire assembly. Hope this helps. I only ended up with a few minor scratches.

SOURCE: how to replace a hazard

I know in 2004 models, The multi-function switch is in your steering wheel. It's the signal stalk and wiper stalk. It's a one piece unit.


If you take off the top half of the steering column cover, you can access the connection for the switch. Unplug it and see if the noise continues.

2000 alero turn signal and the hazzard dont work what is the problem


Good Evening, this is a common problem and you would be best to check with your local dealer to see if the recall (replacing the hazard switch) has been done. Your hazard switch is also your turn signal flasher and your hazard flasher all in one switch. Try playing with the button while you have your turn signals on, there is a good chance you will notice it may work sporatically. Hope this helps.

GM sent letters to owners starting December 30, 2004. In January 2006, GM will update the special policy to include MY 2002 Alero, Grand Am and Malibu vehicles not covered under recall 03V-327. The policy covers turn signal/hazard flasher failure for a period of 10 years or 150,000 miles (whichever occurs first) to provide a no cost replacement of the hazard switch. GM will send letters to owners starting late April 2006. The actions taken by the manufacturer is sufficient to resolve the issues raised by this investigation.

Hazard switch replacement


www.rockautpparts.com part number 1S8422 Hazard Warning Switch. $33.96 total cost. My 2002 Alero had switch in dash, not part of grill. Had to remove speedometer bezel and speedometer. Then take two small straight slots to put on holder to push tabs down to release. Patience is a virtue on this.
