2003 Dodge Stratus Hazard Light problem

My hazard lights on my Stratus were fine until a few days ago, then they began working sporadically. Now they don't work at all.

I checked the fuse panel inside the car, but none are for the hazard lights. The fuse & relay box under the hood is not labeled. No owner's manual came with the car. I'm looking for one now, but in the meantime, I have to fix this, as my job requires hazard lights.

I should also mention the blinkers aren't working either. Replaced that fuse, with no luck.

I'd appreciate any help!

I had the same issue with a 2002 stratus, the problem was the flasher relay. It's located inside the steering column, inside the multiswitch, and its fairly easy to replace. Two screws under the steering column to remove the top cover, then two hex screws to remove the multiswitch, then you can remove the relay which is green, mine was part# 04606478AD. You won't find this exact relay at the local auto parts store, but you can order from mopar parts online, or check the parts dept. at your local dealer. I called a local dealer, he didn't have it but was able to find one a few miles away, cost was $30.

SOURCE: turn signals /hazard lights don't blink

Hi! check first for any blown fuse. INSPECTION 1. Check for a burnt fusible link with an ohmmeter. 2. If a fusible link burns out, there is a short or some other problem in the circuit. Carefully determine the cause and correct it before replacing the fusible link. The fusible link will burn out within 15 seconds if a higher than specified current flows through the circuit.2f5ff5a.gif

SOURCE: blinker stopped working, but the hazard lights still work - I think it's a blown fuse but how and where do I fix the fuse

There is 2 different flashers. One flasher for the turn signals and one flasher for the hazards. If you turn on the turn signals and the turn indicator on the dash lights up but doesn't blink, then most likely it is the turn signal flasher that is bad. Good luck.

first check all of the bulbs are good. on some cars if a bulb is burned out the blinker will flash faster than normal.

Hazard lights are on a different circuit as they are supplied with power from the battery. Indicators are supplied through your ignition switch. Take a look at fuses first, check them electrically using a test probe. Then take a look at the flasher unit. It may be difficult to find but check in the fuse panel first. This usually looks like a square relay type but it will have two or three connections, not four or more. Flasher units dont fail that often but they do fail.Try turning the ignition on and then switch one side flashers on, then tap each relay box in the fuse panel. If it clicks, then that signifys that it is the flasher unit, replace it with the same type. WARNING, if you use the wrong type of flasher unit, you will damage the new unit and pop fuses etc. Make sure you replace it with the same type of flasher unit.

2001 4Runner. Car security went bust first, then the horn stopped working, then the hazard lights. Now, the brakes as well. Any help please?

All except the brakes sound like fuses failing, or wires breaking. A quick check of the fuse box should remedy those.

What do you mean by "the brakes"?

does the pedal go to the floor without stopping the truck?
do the brake lights not come on?
is the brake indicator on the dash on?

need a little more to go on

How to locate and replace the flasher in 2001

Sounds as if the hazard flasher is going out. The only problem is that I don't know where it is located. Since yu said that sometimes it works, try it and see if you can find out where the clicking noise is coing from. It should be from somewhere near the steering column. Replace it.

98 Elantra Turn Signals and Hazards Broken

Check your flasher. The flasher is a round metal thing inside the fuse panel. There are two fuse panels in the 98's, one inside the car by the hood release latch, and one under the hood by the battery. I'm not sure which one the flasher is in, but that definetly sounds like your problem. It simply plugs in like a fuse, and I would say it probably costs less than ten bucks, so I would try that first before anything and even if thats not the problem you only wasted a few bucks. Oh yea on a few cars the flasher might not be in the fuse panel, if it's not in yours its probably under the dash. If you cant find it or don't think you know what it looks like, I would go to the auto parts store and buy the new one, that way you know what your looking for. Good luck, hope this helped you.

98 Hyundai Elantra turn signal and hazards only work sometimes.

You need to replace the fuse - have a look at the manual and see which fuse it is buy a new one put it in and it should be fine - the on off thing is where the fuse wire touches and then moves again.
