Do the lights blink rapidly when you switch the hazards on or just when you get in the car? If they do you may want to take look at the Hazzard realy...

they blink rapidly as soon as I open any of the doors. the hazard switch is in the off position. they stop after 60 seconds.the car starts and drives normally.i have owned the car for years and this has only started 1 week ago . Thanks.

timmycorolla take a good look at the wire loom from the drivers door to chassis. All doors, but the drivers door especially. Does the horn chirp also? A 1999 the door has been opened and closed thousands of times and there could be a short in the loom. This is an odd one. But as joemom says, the relay may be acting up somehow. But it may need an auto-electrician, but then again it's not a serious problem, something that can be 'lived with' on a tight budget - like I have - I do not see how it can do any harm. ~~ joemom and timmycorolla I want to wish you guys a very Merry Christmas, I hope You and Yours are safe and well. ~~David
