My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

This type of fault here may be due to a fault with a hazard or turn signal switch (as installed) or possibly shorted or damaged wiring leading from the switch(es) needing repaired or replaced.If you have not checked for any shorted or damaged wiring this should be done first here to see if any issues are found needing repaired or replaced.If the wiring is o.k. this will need tested further to see if you possibly have a faulty switch causing this fault needing replaced.I dont know if your model has an alarm system on it but this may be the cause as well here.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
