Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you out with your question.

Expert:  Dan replied 7 months ago.

Disconnect the hazard switch itself. You will need to remove some trim panels as it is built into the dash.

Expert:  Dan replied 7 months ago.

If they turn off after disconnecting the switch, then replace the switch. If not, then you have a problem with the body control module.

Expert:  Dan replied 7 months ago.

Sometimes you can give the dash a firm tap with your hand and the hazard lights with turn off.

Expert:  Dan replied 7 months ago.

Tap it near the hazard switch.
