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.

How do I turn off the hazard lights on 09 Cadillac STS when the hazard button is stuck?


there is a recall on the GM light system so check it out . The hazard light switch basically just connects both side indicators together. For a short term fix see if you can pull the connector of the back of the switch.

I have a 1998 Chevy Z71 and I broke my hazard light button. My hazard lights won't go off so I had to pull the fuse out but now I don't have brake lights or turn signal lights. What should I do?


Pull the wires off the back of your hazard button ,isolate them with tape or terminal block until you replace your broken hazard button. Replace the fuse you took out.

1992 Ford Ranger Turn signal/Hazard light issue


Can you just check to make sure the ignition key switch is not staying over to far and not backing off when you try to start it. I had a truck that did that and it messed up my turn signals until I brought the key switch back a little after starting it. Just a simple idea. Be kind with your rating for me. Raz
