Hazard lights come on without prompting them

Asked by Tjohnson613 Jan 09, 2020 at 08:33 AM about the 2006 Dodge Dakota

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Yesterday my hazard/turn signal/roof/dash lights
decided to start blinking without anyone being near
or inside the truck. I disconnected the battery and
reconnected it and they stopped and everything
seemed fine until this morning when the same issue
happened. So I disconnected the battery so it
wouldn’t die.

The truck sat in my driveway for over a year with
water from rain leaking through the windshield seal.
Took care of that issue but I think the remaining
moisture that was left in the carpet caused
condensation on the windshield from the inside and
the build up ran down to the electrical in the dash. I
don’t know. I’m just guessing.

What would be the best solution to fixing this
problem with the lights flashing?

1 Answer

Replace the Airbag Clockspring in the steering wheel... Did on my 1993 Town and Country and again today in my 2003 Dodge Dakota... $160 including labor...
