Hello All,
Have been enjoying all the friendliness and knowledge of the many postings on GWOF but didn't think I would be asking a question myself quite so soon.

I bought my 2004 GL1800 last fall and have just begun to enjoy it. Naturally, I tried everything out when I first brought it home and it seemed to be in almost mint condition with only 29K miles.

This spring, however, I find that the hazard lights will not function properly and I'm thinking it might be the switch. They definitely worked when I depressed the switch last fall. Now, all lights illuminate when the switch is depressed, but the switch does not stay depressed nor will the lights blink as normally. All fuses are in good order, turn signals and head/tail lights all work and I have had absolutely no problems with this wonderful bike otherwise.

Looking forward to your thoughts,
Rambo1207

Did you try spraying some air into the switch. Sometimes dirt can accumulate in there and prevent the switch from working properly...

Probably just the switch need cleaning, you can spray contact cleaner on it (cover any painted parts near the area) or try blowing compressed air around it. I never used my 4 way anyway.

You can also take it apart and clean it, but be very careful, there is a little spring in there that will pop out and dissappear. Ask me how I know... I've been told the spring from a Shrader air valve will work but I haven't taken it back apart to try to fix it yet... too busy riding....(sigh...)
