Hazard help - they arent working!

Well, my hazards dont work when I push in the hazard button. My indicators work fine. I've swapped my hazard button with a buddies, same story, and my button works in his car.

Could it be the relay that is shagged? There is power coming to the button in the console.

I think you're on the right track. Might as well have a look at the fuses, but I think you may find an actual wire issue.

Checked all the fuses too, swapped a whole lot, just to be sure, same story, still dont work.... When I turn on the lights (headlights etc), the hazard button does light up, as it should (it stays glowing red).

Locate the flasher unit, it will be similar to the one for the directionals but maybe larger. Follow the clicking.

Ok, so I sorted out my problem - there is a relay behind the glove box - mine was a bit loose, wiggled it around a bit, and it worked perfectly. Note that my car is a RHD, so not sure if the relay is behind the glove box or steering wheel of a LHD car...
