Hazard lights only work on one side

Post by Gingermagic »

Hi All,

Our hazard lights, from the outside, just look like we're indicating left.

The right indicators work fine as indicators, but don't come on with the hazard light switch.

Is there any way of fixing this?

Thanks,
Damian

Faulty hazard light switch, you can take them apart and clean out the hardened grease should restore it.

Yep agree with BH ! It’s the switch or it’s connections

Are the switches easy to take out?

Is it a case of screwdriver underneath and a bit of a jiggle, or more to it than that?

Take binnacle cover off above speedo/clock. Unclip switch from behind and push out.
