Try toggling your Hazard Switch on and off several tomes on the center console. They seem to be linked to the flashers.

The missing ground you had with the left visor light is probably related. Do you have a manual?

If You Set The Caps Lock And Type, There Is Some Software Thing Here That Drops Everything To Lowercase Except The First Letter Of Every Word.

In case anyone was wondering.

Try it. It's fun. Really.

I love cheap fixes. Much better than those $1000+ fixes.

And how do you say "Zoinks" with an Irish accent? My mind reels at the implications.
