Turn indicators light up when I hit brakes.

I just replaced my blinker switch in the column. Now both turn indicators light up in the dash when I hit the brakes. Since I have never been in another 71, arethe supposed to do that?

On another note, how is the hazard switch supposed to work? Pull it out for hazards and push it back in to turn them off? My button seems to not go anywhere.

You pull the hazard switch out to turn off. Sounds like they're turned on and flasher is not working

Yep. That was it. Thank you. Now I ask, do all 4 blinkers have to be connected for the flasher to click? I don't have blinkers in the front because they were in the bumper. Now I have a winch bumper.

Not neccessarily but it will make things work funny so you should set some up on the bumper. I've had one that the wires got tore off and it made the indicator on the dash stay lit when the headlights were on.

Hmmm. Well I just replaced the blinker switch in the column and when I flip it left or right nothing happens. I guess I'll go get some front lights and see if that fixes it
