Hazard switch

I have a 93 1500 with a defective hazard switch. Can I still get a replacement? If not, can I configure another type of switch? Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks

Hazard Switch

The Hazard switch is not available from Honda (or aftermarket). You would need to purchase the complete left handlebar switch assembly.

What specifically is the issue with your hazard switch? Maybe it could possibly be cleaned or repaired.

That left "SE" switch housing is no longer available from Honda.
As DBohrer suggests, maybe all yours needs is a cleaning. That's very common with the Honda switches.

The left switch cluster is the same for 1990 - 1996. As Dennis said, not available.

The left switch cluster is the same for 1997 - 2000. Still available.

There is only one internal part "plate A ornament" and its screw that is different between the 1996 and 1997. Nothing electrical related....!

All the plug connections are the same.

I betcha the 1997 switch cluster will work on the 1996.

Honda frequently makes a minor change then changes part numbers.

Just my thoughts after checking/comparing all the part numbers between the two years.......!

You should try cleaning the switch first, thats a really common problem.
Best to take the cover apart, then access dried up gunk clogging the switch springs- CRC or wd will do, qtips can help dig out loosened crud.

Operate switches numerous times till they work properly, then apply new dielectric grease- any parts store less than $5, replace covers and enjoy

Anyone reading this with a stuck On hazard switch spray wd or crc thru the small opening and operate switch 50 to 1000 times with spraying, until it finally unglues itself.
Often faster and easier on thumb to open the covers and perform some basic maintenance- probably not found in maintenance schedule, unless a small footnote about lube cables and switches as needed
Oh, you mean like... if I ride on Earth?

It's nice to have everything working properly nut do you ever use the hazard lights? I have owned 7 Gold Wings and have never used the hazard lights. Of course I push on and off all the switches just about every time I ride just to keep them working properly but never had to use the hazards.

I have a 97 GL1500 and have the same issue. I assume its just dirty due to the fact that it feels gummy when i push it in. Like Joe stated, I never use mine either but would like to get it working just incase.
I thought i had read somewhere that you must have either the left or right turn siginal on to make the flashers work. Is that correct? Maybe i was just dreaming.

No, it is wrong.

Moreover, if you do that you will hear double clicks of the two flashers, and strangely flashing turn signal lights, which may cause some issues at the flasher relays, I think.

However, if you remove the hazard flasher relay, I think you can still have hazard flashing capability by pushing the hazard switch in and turning the left or right signals on, as you mentioned (needs confirmation).

Power Guy, The Hazard switch has two output power wires.

1. The orange output wire is spliced to the orange output wire from the turn signal switch.

2. The light blue output wire is spliced to the light blue output wire from the turn signal switch.

All the Hazard switch does is apply power to the orange and light blue wires at the same time.
