Then either the tiny plastic latching mechanism inside that keeps it latched is broken, or it is so gummed up that it can't move. Did you force the switch off by pulling it out when it was stuck in? If so, chances are you've broken the latching mechanism.

Not on its own, no, Honda originally only sold the entire control pod, and that's how you'll find used replacements being sold as well. However, if you do get a replacement pod, you can remove the hazard switch from it, desolder the wires from it, then solder it in place of your broken one. That saves you from the hassle and work of having to replace the entire pod.
