My 2006 Saab 9-3 hazard lights do not turn on. When I press

Customer Question

Hello, my 2006 Saab 9-3 hazard lights do not turn on.
JA: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?
Customer: When I press the hazard button nothing happens.
JA: Are you fixing your 9-3 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: So far I have not tried anything. I assume it may be a fuse, but I do not see anything in the manual for a hazard fuse.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: The amp under the driver seat was replaced about 3 months ago. I don't know of any connection, but just for his general knowledge.

Hi im kevin there is no seperate fuses for hazard lights so if indicators are working ok then its most likely that the hazard switch is at fault

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The hazard switch is part of the a/c control head and can't be removed or serviced separately. To accurately diagnose the issue it's going to require a scan tool to be able to monitor module data. If the turn signals do work but the hazards do not then the switch is almost surely the cause, but there isn't anything you'd be able to test at the switch itself.
