My hazard switch is broken and I'm in need of a new one. There are some variations of the switches over the years. Here are some photos of what I need. I am not able to make it to the rally:( and Dr. Schlegs has offered to look for one on my behalf, but he may end up too busy to root through all the nooks and cranys. If you have this switch available, let me know.

If you can't find it any where else, Spector Off Road has them for $30. Looks like you can unscrew your existing knw and re-use it. If anyone in the club is an SOR member you can get a pretty good discount on the $30.

I may have one from the '71 Pig I parted out years ago - I can check. It's yours if you need it. I will look tonight and PM you or reply.

That would be great. Not to jump too far ahead, but if you have it and can get it to Frontrange (if you get the welding wire from him) - he could get it to Dr. Schlegs when they get together at the junk yard tomorrow. Of course, if that doesn't work out, that is ok as well. :D

I'm sure you've seen Ricardo, but there's a bunch of these switches on Mud from some of the "parts collectors" like Trollhole.

I have and sent the photos on to Trollhole to look through his stash. :thumb:

I also PMd Coolerman who has done some great documentation on the wiring of 1971 FJ40, including a detailed diagram of the hazard switch wiring. According to Coolerman, the failure on my switch is a bit unusual. It is the plastic body inside the switch that has split in two - he has not ever seen this part of the switch fail.

Ricardo,

I might have one as well - yeah I know...What a surprise right? :hill:

Let me know if the other sources come up dry and I'll look around. I've bought 2 or 3 of these trying to get the right one for my 40 (thinking the hazard is the cause for my flaky blinkers per what Subzali has discovered in the past) but I'm pretty sure the knobs all say 'Hazard' so they might be different.

Ricardo,

I checked my stash...I have 3 hazard switches :rolleyes: but nothing like Trollhole's collection :hill:

Unfortunately none are like what you posted up...I have two with the long rectangular plug (with nine wires/pins) like you see on the far left in the above pic and then one with a narrower rectangular plug (with 6 wires/pins) like you see in the middle of the pic.
