Removing Stuck Hazard Switch...

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I've seen the postings on removing the hazard switch.  They all begin with "Turn on Hazards".  My switch is stuck in the in position, which is why I"m trying to remove it to locate the issue.  It is in the in position and feels very firm, there's zero movement.

 

Ideas??

It should pull out but it has many large prongs so it might feel stuck. I ended up having to use a pair of pliers to grip the entire switch and pull it. Then the second time I broke it by pulling on the inner part :(

 The out position is preferred and easier to place some plastic upholstery tools behind it.  You can try small screwdrivers with some tape over the blades.

 

Once you pull the black button off  you will see the white switch inside the opening. Squeeze the 2 tabs on the side of the switch while pulling the switch out with needle nose pliers. I use needle nose on one side to push that side in while pinching the main part of the switch, push the opposite tab in with a small screwdriver or your finger and pull the switch straight out.

 

I have not removed that switch without it being in the ON position (out) and have heard when you pull it while in the off position you could break it.

 

You might try freeing the switch by grabbing just the center part of the switch and pushing it in then pulling it out with the needle nose.

Yeah, it appears you may need a new switch anyway.
