Hey Guys,
I have a 86 190E. Today I installed my new wood dash piece (the one that goes around the shifter) and after installation my hazard switch won't work and my turn signals won't work. I checked the fuses and everything is fine. The brights work and window washer system does too. This has happened before after I press the hazard switch the turn signals short out. Ohh the bulbs are fine too and all the other switches seem to function normally. What's wrong? Thanks guys, Scott

Cycle the hazzard switch on/off a few times, see if that clears up your problem. Sometimes the hazzard switch sticks, causing the turn signals to not work.

Fixed. Thanks for your help! I forgot to plug the hazard switch back in when installing my new wood console piece. I didn't know that your turn signals won't work when your hazard switch isn't pluged in though. At least I learned that the two are linked. Thanks! Scott
