would a dose of CRC loosen that emergency switch, or (seriously) a tap or tug ?

Ok, I sprayed it and there is tiny bit of play in the arm, I mean it's not frozen in place. I can wiggle it but it still won't pull out or push in. I don't really want to force it too much for fear of breaking it and my luck it would break off in the ON position. :roll eyes:

Maybe give it another shot and let it soak. we got some hot days too. I keep a weather logger in my bus. All closed up with all the curtains and blinds down it hits 110. Let that heat up with the CRC and work it with your fingers. I bet it will loosen up.

Ok, new odd discoveries:
If I tug on the steering wheel and move it a bit, then I can PUSH in the 4 way arm and it will blink on the dash. My daughter said the drivers side flashed but the passenger side stayed steady. if I let go of the steering wheel, it would return to its previous position and push the button out. If I was pushing on the button and moving the wheel, I could feel when it would line up and the button could be depressed, almost like a tumbler in a lock.

So based on this, I am thinking we have a grumpy 4 way switch.

The 4-way switch pushes IN about 1/4" to turn them on and it looks the same as my switch. I've used mine many times (ugh).

There's only one flasher and it's behind the driver's headlight panel right there for you to see, it's not buried too badly on mine. You do need to replace it with an electronic one at some point. This is not your current problem, though.

What do you have for toad light wiring? Did you install a relay or anything like that?
