  • Hazard Relay

    I need to replace my hazard relay. Can someone recommend a replacement that can be found at a parts store or on amazon? It’s a 2 pin that is used for standard bulbs. Picture below.
    Thanks

      Just take it out and take it with you to find one similar, standard 12V incandescent bulb flasher. Usually they are round and you can still get them in the mount.

        Thanks guys. I'll probably pop it out and bring it over to the store. I wasn't sure if there was a particular brand or part number that folks prefer or stay away from.

          This hazard relay can be purchased from TRF, if desired. Part # EU23 and costs less than $12. per their catalogue.

            That's what I did...must have been nearly 10 years ago and it's fine...not that I've had to use it..only to check it occasionally

              I guess I should’ve described why I need a new one. I was trying to figure out why the blink rate was so slow. I noticed it last year when I had to use them and figured that one day I’ll get around to figuring out why it’s slow. I started with the connections. As I wiggled one of the wires to check for tightness, the plastic bit with the posts fell out of the metal casing. As I foolishly did not disconnect the battery beforehand, the innards brushed up against the metal casing creating a spark that damaged the unit. Luckily, the fuse blew as it should.

              In any event, my guess is the one that I have is a Lucas brand or equivalent and would like to try something a bit more robust. I’ll head over to the parts store at some point.

              Lesson learned though-always disconnect the battery when doing any electrical stuff no matter how minor it may seem.

              Thanks for the tips

                You can get an "Electronic" or a 'Thermal' flasher...mine is a universal 2 terminal electronic flasher..It can be used as a turn or a hazard flasher.

                  True on the battery. Do you know that if those are the original fuses, they are not rated the same as the U.S. ones?

                    Yes, I picked up a few spares from either TRF or Moss a few years ago. 35A variety. It’s the first time I had to dip into the spares.
                    Thanks for the heads up.

                      After repeated failures of my turn signals in my concourse car to flash properly with current supply flashers, I looked at the unit in my other car which has been working great since I got it 17 years and 70K miles ago ( so it's older than that ). It says " Signal Stat 175 ".

                      Ebay turned up a few of these; I bought (2). Later, my emergency flasher ( with original switch ) embarrassed me at a show by not working, to the amusement of a gent with another '250 who'd gone to great lengths to replace the switch and flasher with non-original stuff. Rooting around in my collection, I discovered a SIGNAL STAT 180 unit just like the one in the holder ( which for all I know was '68 vintage ) and it resumed working normally after fitting.

                      Brake light switches are NFG either; after much frustration with the plastic jokes supplied by the usual suspects I got a DELCO on ebay from a seller in Israel. Guess these are pretty rare now.
