Hey BottomFeeder,
May I borrow one of those hazard flashers? I would like to do a "Salvage" thread on a hazard switch.


You sure can.

I need to resurrect this thread.

89 Raider, I was sitting in a drive through waiting for my food and decided on a lark to test the hazard switch and nothing happened. Upon leaving I noticed that I no longer had turn signals, nor brake lights. I checked all of the fuses in the little panel between the dash and drivers door, all are good. The running lights work on all four corners, and the dual filament bulbs in the rears are good as well. I then replaced the round relay below the steering wheel which I believe is the hazard/turn signal flasher. Still no improvement. There is a black rectangular relay mounted next to this, closer to the fire wall. I pulled the hazard switch out of the dash and took it apart, the solder points on the backing plate all look good, no loose wires, and the two copper plates inside the switch are in good shape and the springs are intact.
Any thoughts?

edit: Just dug a little deeper in my search and uncovered all of the information on the hazard switch. I'll run through Jay's switch rebuild and see where that leaves me and update accordingly. I didn't bother to look for this switch in the Raider at my local JY, but I am heading there this weekend.

Success. Mine required a little fettling though as part of the clear plastic arm behind the rocker was broken and missing, and one side of the housing was broken and wouldn't catch the backing plate so I had to add a shim to compress the springs and tape it back together, but upon testing I have signals again!
