Default Turn signal/Hazard lights

Need a couple things...on the road and hard to access documents. Hazard switch failed. This is sold as a unit with turn signal. I have seen docs suggesting this is a Ford Part. Any help with WHICH would be great so I can give Mapa correct info.

Also, flasher is flakey...it is up above...i can open compartment but would like to have replacement when I do as i have to move TV etc...

I have this all cobbled together and working so I can at least drive safely

Off to canada then alaska tomorrow...so not sure how to get parts, but first stepnis WHICH parts...

Default PITA

Now THAT would be a good name for a Wanderlodge!

Having trouble getting organized with Woody -- called, bad cell, torrential rains, texted, etc. We'll get'er done, tho.

With a bit of redneck engineering, I CAN flash turn signals and at least rear hazards, we are gonna proceed. If I can connect with Woody, maybe he can ship to Chicken (it IS in the USA, ostensibly).

Does anyone have an actual SCHEMATIC for the hazard and turn signal switches. I am pretty decent at noodling things out, but that hazard switch is a black box that I CANNOT diagnose when the one I have is bad. I could NOT rig up a switch or switches to properly turn on and off hazards and return things back to proper turn signal operation. The hazard switch is NOT a "simple" dpdt

so the hazard switch is not built into the turn signal switch on the column?
i would get the switch that has the hazard built into the TSS and add a flasher.
Simple as pie/
I have done that before.
But,if you think your going to get delivery of anything in chicken,your dreaming!!

My hazard is a seperate switch mounted opposite side from the tss but the wiring is shared somehow. But i have seen replacements where it is all one unit. I will try to figure out how to post a pic. If i could obtain "just" the hazard side or a schematic for it.

Default Pic of original Hazard Switch

The circled switch is melted/damaged. I have replaced with a DPDT switch -- which works "well enuf" in that turn signals work in one position and REAR HAZARDS work in the other.



If I could add "just" a flasher as you describe that would prob. solve my problem for the foreseeable future. How would that work?

OK,i was thinking you had a separate black box that was the hazards,when its all in the same switch.
It is a ford switch,and i bet it fits like a 1970 F650 ford truck.
