hazzard switch source part #AFU4209L

I need a new hazard switch for my 1994 NAS Defender 90. Rovers North doesn't have one and there are none currently on ebay. Anyone know a source? Thanks

It looks like the part may have been superseded to YUF101830

IIRC the last time I tried to get one through Land Rover they had been made obsolete.

LR have listed prity much all parts earlier than a D2 as obsolete, if you can find a NOS Lucas get it otherwise it's an after market one.

Fwiw soon I should have a mod out (along with an updated face plate milled from aluminum) that will allow you to switch over to the Carling hazard fairly seamlessly (prototype pic below...obviously will be powdercoated/etc when done). So the config will be:
Carling Hazard / Square NAS clock / round factory 12v or BlueSea usb.

That said - what is actually "wrong" with your current switch? Awhile back I took mine apart and cleaned & lines with dielectric grease and it's been good to go since.

However, even if you fix your current switch I've always felt the NAS Hazard was under-designed and prone to breaking or having issues (hence the Carling upgrade project that's been in the works).

It is not broken. Take it apart and clean it and it will be fine. In fact, pushing it in and out ten times usually works too.

I bought a replacement switch and discovered the replacement is poorly made so I replaced mine with a Carling hazard switch. They provided the wiring diagram with the switch. The Carling switch is much better made.

Were those same switches used for other reasons on the pre 1994 RRC? Just because the appearance is similar doesn't mean they'll work, but sometimes cross checking other models results in success.

Here is an old fs thread for one of those switches: http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...d.php?p=446461

From what I recall based on my prior searches - though don't quote me on this in case my memory ain't what it used to be - is that they are NOT compatible.

Unless you're dead-set on the factory hazard switch for some reason, I'd suggest changing to the Carling Hazard as I alluded to above. It's a pretty easy swap, and going to a Carling means you will actually have a hazard switch that "works" when you need it.

Also, if yours is not functioning at the moment, try taking it apart and cleaning it as mentioned above. Alternatively, if you just have lost your turn-signals completely due to the switch failing, here's a temporary bypass trick I posted here that will buy you some time:

This.

A few weeks ago I was having a turn signal issue. I finally tracked it down to the hazard switch (which was new for this build although not genuine). I ordered the Carling parts from Jason, changed out the stock plug and now everything works how it is supposed to. The Carling hazard is much easier to switch and visually doesn't get lost in the lower dash. SDO sells the correct clips and backing plate so the wiring will look factory when down as well.
