Hazard Warning Switch

The Hazard warning switch will not stay on because it won't stay pushed in. Anyone ever have this issue, and is the switch replaceable? It was late last night when I discovered this, so I have not taken anything apart.

Re: Hazard Warning Switch

Does the button have clearance around it in the hole in the column? I know that if there is any misalignment, the button rubs and may not be allowed to be pushed all the way in.

The switch is definitely replaceable. I took mine apart and rebuilt it. But I didn't have to replace any of the bits inside. So, if something is broken, the whole thing would have to be replaced...

It has been quite awhile since I did that. I can't remember what exactly "catches" the button when pushed in. I have a few pictures. But I didn't take the cover off the emergency circuit. There is a spring that returns it to the out/off position. That is about all I can deem from the pictures... Most of the on "clicks" are ridges/bumps and corresponding "divots". Therefore, it is either worn or broken, I would assume...

Re: Hazard Warning Switch

Apparently the work over I gave the hazard switch last night loosened something up. I tried it just a little bit ago and now it works. I suspect overspray got into the switch and when I gave it a workout last night, something changed. Thanks to FSB, at least I now know if it does stop working all together, I can replace it. Team Camaro has been empowering, Thank you!

Re: Hazard Warning Switch

Mine didnt work a few yrs back.. gave it a few gentle twists but would not stay on.. so pulled it , gave it a clean up, worked fine ever since.. it was just a build up of dust , polish and stuff over the yrs
Its not an item that going to get worn out...

My Spelling is not incorrect...it is creative
