    My hazards have stopped working on my Kontiki, the push switch glows brighter when I push it in but the flashers don't flash.
    Indicators still work normally and all the rest of the electrics are working.
    The 'home is a '97 Kontiki 640L on a Fiat 2.5 TDI
    Any ideas as to what the problem is and where to check?

    ::bigsmile:Chances are it will be a relay switch, I am not sure but I suspect there would be a seperate relay switch for tha hazards, check the handbook and find out which one it is and change it, that is the cheapest option and most obvious that I would go for.

    Easiest option is take the hazard relay out and put it into the indicator relay slot.
    If the indicators dont work you know its the relay you have to change.
    If the indicators do work..its a good chance its the switch thats gone.

    We come across this many times MoT testing
    some times just jabbing the switch in and out harshly half a dozen times get things working again
    Lack of use in the culprit in most cases
