Hey Folks,

 

I took apart my gauge cluster in order to redo the leather on top of the cover.  That turned out great, and I will post pics of the procedure in the other thread.

 

I have an issue with the hazard flashers now.  THEY WONT TURN OFF.  The is only one way that the three pieces can go together, so, I know they are put together correctly.

 

My problem is that they just wont turn off now.  Is there something that I am missing??  Granted, I had a bit of trouble getting the thing apart, but, I didn't break anything, and once I figured out exactly how everything comes apart, assembly was quite easy.

 

Any ideas?  or am I just the unlucky guy that had the switch fail right when I happen to be taking it apart?  (seems unlikely, but, who knows?)

 

Thanks in Advance,

 

Brian

It is possible that the switch picked this moment to fail, but that would seem unlikely.  I would pull the switch out and unplug it to see if the flashers stop.

Absolutely they stop.  That's what I did.  I removed the switch, and will just use the car over the weekend without turn signals/emergency flashers.  I ordered another switch, a used one on eBay for $20.  I'll have it on Monday!  THE GOOD NEWS THOUGH????  I finally fixed the **** error code 21, the airbag light has been on since I bought the car.  I bought a used clockspring on eBay for $59. and it is fixed!  YAHOOEY!  I am beginning to think that nothing will break as long as I don't fix everything.  Seems like every time I fix some little nagging thing, something else breaks.  I guess I shouldn't complain.
