Hazard lights

Post by GrimReaper86 »



I accidentally push the hazard light switch. Now, it won't come out to turn them off. Anyone know how I can get the switch to go off?

sounds a bit like a sticky switch which can happen when they get a bit dry. try a can of electrical cleaner with lubricant, use a straw, put a cloth under the switch and spray down the sides of the switch. work the switch in and out

Well, tried the electrical cleaner and got no joy. After 2 days (yes, 2) of pressing that darn button, it finally came back out. I'm half-inclined to super glue that sucker. :twisted:

definitely a sticky switch ok something else to try inox injector needle its a very light oil with a fine needle i have used this on other switches not on the hazard but the needle can some times be pushed carefully to the side of the switch, allowing of the oil to be pushed in
