93 YJ hazard button/knob is missing help

New to the forum. I have a 93 YJ and the hazard knob/button is missing so I cant use hazards. Tore steering colum apart and it looks like turn signal switch is ok. What does the Part look like and maybe where I can find one?? Thanks in advance for any help.

Welcome to the forum!!

If you care a lot quadraltec has these.

If you just want it to work wire it to a rocker on the dash somewhere

[size=3]Shackles & D-rings are different things.

Here is what it looks like more or less.

Mines a little more coolio with the lettering in RED.

Stop whining about the 'ride' - If your YJ ain't wrangling your soul free, then might I suggest you buy a stationwagon... at least you can fit all your bull**** in the back.

Mine was gone also. Simply went to the hardware store and bought a thumbscrew with the correct thread. Like a 10x24 or something along that line.


Just grabbed several sizes and mentioned to the sales guy I was checking for fit out in the parking lot.

I grabbed a small wood screw and rammed it in there. Mine was broken off below the outside of the steering column. It's a little more work to pull it out but it's not like this is a normal use item.

Same type button CJ's have. I found the button in the help section of NAPA and JB welded the screw into it. The one of the shelf was chrome so I painted it black and cooled it up by painting the middle red...really I did it so that I could find the button again.

Well I guess my turn signal switch in steering column is broke where it screws in so either I replace the switch which looks to be pretty tricky with tilt column or I figure another way to get hazards. Dont use them much but for jeep things where alot of jeeps run hazards in groups etc. Parades etc.

Aren't these GM steering columns? You can get one from an old Chevy.

Do you need this to pass some inspection? Or just because you want it?

Like others have said, you can replace the entire column, but IMO your best bet is to find a mid 90s Cherokee in the junk yard and open up the tilt column there, grab your switch and hazard knob, and transfer the parts to yours. It's a bit of work, but not all too difficult with a loaner steering wheel puller from an auto parts store and a decent set of hand tools.

The other benefit is that you get to explore and make any mistakes on the junk yard column before you open up yours.

The Column is ok just trying to fish the wires from a new turn signal switch down the column looks tricky. The piece that the button screws into is missing on mine currently.

Just an end to the story I changed the turn signal switch in my column . ( not an easy job to route wires down column but i have a tool that pull wires out of plastic connector then fish wires with coat hanger down column. Not a job for the meek. Real pain in the butt) but it's fixed and I now have hazards for when I need them. Thank you for all the answers.

Whole new switch assembly can be had from $15 to $30 on Rock Auto. Replacement is nowhere near tricky as long as you have the spring compressor tool, which you can rent free or buy for about $14. As for the actual knob, I grabbed one at pick and pull when I was there for something else, think I pulled it from a Chevy truck, maybe paid $1.

If you want to shoot me a PM with your email address I'll send you a PDF on tearing down the column.

**EDIT** Guess you got it, I should've read the whole thread....
