If the hazard/emergency flashers are on, first try pressing the hazard switch located on the floor console just to the drivers side of the shifter where the trunk release button is located.

Please let me know if that fixes the problem.

No I tried that

Then the hazard switch itself will need to be replaced. It sends a signal to the SJB (Smart Junction Box) to turn the hazard lights on and off.

Where do I get those ?
Ford Mechanic: A. Penland, Ford Senior Master Technician, ASE replied 5 months ago

Your local Ford dealership. I do not think the aftermarket companies sell them yet.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
