Hello, This may be a problem with the hazard flasher switch on top of the steering column. Try spraying WD 40 around the switch, push it down and let it pop up several times, then wiggle it a bit to further loosen it. Dirt and grime can build up on these, causing the button to stick. Best of luck! CarGrrl

try moving the steering wheel all the way up and check the brake lights to see if they came on
