What do you do to turn the hazards off? I'm wondering if you have a faulty relay.

My 318 did the same thing.You can pull the CRASH-ALARM relay #1384-732.It is a brown color and it is under the driver side dash.You can leave it out but your flashers won't work.If you try this. Let me know how it goes.

In that case. you likely need a new one; I'm sure there are laws that require the flashers to work.

These cars have some small problems and the BMW dealers won't help.If I can help with anything else let me know.Let me know where you buy the relay and how much it is.You can check with pelicanparts.com.
