silly electrical system-Haz lights not working

OK time again for me to tap the collective genius here. so far you guys have been awesome in helping me either directly or indirectly with my 110. here's the next saga:

hazard lights, when you activate the switch, nothing happens....except that when you use the turn signal now they don't work. turn off the hazards, turn signals work fine? what the hey?

if it helps other fun things: horn sounds wonky, sometimes doesn't work, might be a ground issue, and yes i have the 110 with the fun temp gauge that came on with the key in acc position and went flat with the engine on(so far i have figured out that i had the wrong gauge and sender from egauges correctly ordered, incorrectly sent...waiting for new parts) thanks in advance

I am having similar issues with my hazard-blinkers. Have you checked the wires on the back of the switch? That would be my first guess second would be your switch went bad. They are not that expensive

The back of the hazard has one large connector and then two side wires that connect on the side of the switch. It is normal when you have the hazard on that the turn signals will not work. you might have a bad ground or a bad switch.

Bad ground seems to come up alot. Especially with my horn sounding wonky and temp gauge issues how to I fix it? What should I be looking to ground specifically? Do I run a new ground cable from the chassis to where?

If the DEF hazard switch is like the one on my Stage One - the hot lead for the indicators comes from the hazard switch. With the hazard switch off - +12v is routed to the indicators. With the hazard switch pulled, +12v is routed to the fourways.

I saw that same thing - I had to replace my Hazard switch. It is a small octopus of wires considering I only thought it was a single throw switch.

On the ground...find your grounding points and clean them up. You may have a particular function that isn't grounded any more that you may need to run a new ground. It is easy to check. Run a temporary ground wire to what you suspect is bad, if it now works..it was the ground.

I'm also trying to figure out why my hazards don't work. Not sure if this will be helpful for you, but there's some good info here:

Take the switch out of the dash and flush it with wd40 and blow it out with an air hose. The flashers will work. The contacts get dirty. You can also use contact cleaner. This is also why people complain bout having to pull out on the hazard switch to get the turn signals to work.

I'm glad I could amuse you. No one else ever answered his two year old question.

Post number 9? Not trying to dampen a newbies spirit it was just funny that a zombie thread was reawakened.

Not a problem. My point in posting in a two year old thread,was to anyone searching this subject. 99% of the time you can clean the switch and save your hard earned money. It was not directed to the op.

If I had seen it I would have said what you did (as I have in a few other threads like this over the years). Cheers for cleaning it up.
