Hazard light switch internals

Unlike so many threads that discuss the hazard lights not turning off or finding the location of said switch, my problem is slightly different.

My hazard lights won't stay on. The flashers work when the knob is pushed and held but the switch releases the moment I pull my hand away.

The flashers worked one day but not the next.

Does anyone out here have a schematic of the hazard switch mechanism or can give some intel into how it works?

Thanks

The hazard switch is incorporated into the turn signal switch. It has some small blade springs that keep the hazards engaged. Maybe one is missing or come out of alignment. You will hafta pull the steering wheel and the lock plate to access it and see.

Try and spay the switch down with contact cleaner and see if it helps. You just might have dirt up in the switch stopping it from catching.
