Hazards not working

Post by pedro20001 » Fri 16 Feb, 2018 16:27

Hi all, got an interesting one on the zed. My hazard lights don’t flash but the indicators work fine and when I unlocked using the remote all the indicators flash. The hazard switch illuminates with the light switch pulled out. Can anyone shed any light on this please as the mot is due in a month and I’m scratching my head! Oh the fuses are ok! Thanks in advance

Is it just the switch? The switch is somewhere that muck can fall down into it and possibly gunge it up?

The Hazard switch is probably the cause, whip it out and check its operation, spray some electrical cleaning fluid in it, see if that resolves the problem and all its connections are clean.
