Hazard Fuse?
 
I've got an '80 Scout II. The 4 way hazard lights just plain stopped working. When the switch is pushed in, absolutely nothing happens. The flasher's fine; I traded the 4 way flasher for the turn signal flasher and nothing changed (either way; the turn signals worked (and are working) perfectly). I'm thinking that maybe it's a fuse 'cause one of the turn signal wires shorted to ground a couple days ago, and I hit the hazard switch before I realized something was wrong. But is there a fuse anywhere? I couldn't readily find it. If not, what could the problem be? Could the switch be bad? If so, how hard is it to change out? Is it just a matter of pulling the steering wheel and getting to it, or is there something else? I've got a diesel, so I really could use this soon...thanks in advance!

I'd start by looking for voltage at the flasher. If no voltage, then work upstream toward the switch. If there
is voltage, then start working downstream. I believe there is a separate fuse for the hazard lights - I can
check tonight. Do you have a manual? I don't use mine all that often any more, the main exception
being dealing with electrical problems.

Later,
Curt

I've got a rebuild manual for the engine, but nothing on the body. I can't afford to buy one, and so far I haven't needed it. I'll do the voltage check tomorrow, but please let me know on the fuse (also where it is) 'cause, if there is one, I'm still pretty sure that's the best bet (with the former short and all). Thanks in advance!

The hazard lights share a fuse with the brake lights. It's the leftmost fuse in the fuse block, and the fuse block is located
under the dash to the left of the steering wheel. Hope this helps.

yeah... they make it so the if you short out your hazards you lose brake lights..... same thing that chevy (and probobly ford) does too....its nice to not have brake lights and not know it...

Yeah, I know...real shocking when I found out last night that my brake lights were dead, too. It made for a quick fix, though; just popped the blown fuse out and put a new one in. But it would have made for one helluva ticket if I had been caught.
So, now my 4 ways are working happy, and I've got brake lights too. Thanks for the help!! :)
