So a guy just walked into my office an said my lights are flashing.

i walk out and sure enough my hazards are going off.

I start thinking ok maybe I bumped the switch this morning and nobody noticed I go out and try to shut them off... nothing. I Start the car drive around the lot. park it still wont shut off. :banghead:

Any suggestions?

Im in Boston... it rained a TON last night.. got splashed pretty hard a couple times and ran through some puddles but that was last night. Its actually been a clear day up until now.

Wondering if I shoudl try disconnecting the battery for a minute?

HELP!!!

Fu(K!

It just dawned on me I had my moon roof tilted up slightly to celar up my windows last night and I forgot to shut it over night. Woke up this moring and noticed it. There was as tiny bit of moisture inside but so little it completely slipped my mind until right now.

Lets figure that switch got wet and shorted out. How do I

1) disconnect it temporarily
2) fix it permanaently?

Thanks

Im a moron!

Try disconnecting the battery for 5-10 mins and see if it goes away. if not i guess it could be the switch, have no clue to take it out tho. but if you do. check it with an ohm meter and see if its working. if its good then its not the switch
