I am in the process of moving the electronics from an '87 Mustang 5.0L LX into my '68 Fastback. It is time to move the Hazard switch. I need an automotice rocker switch (preferably lighted) which will handle the '87 Hazard switch functions. As I recall (the schematic is at the shop) it is dual pole, dual throw. One switch is normally closed, then open when the switch is thrown. The other part is dual pole, normally open then closed when thrown, all controlled by a single arm. Anyone out there know of a source for automotive switches, or a source where I can have one fabricated? Thanks in advance for your assistance.

A trip to your local auto parts store should be enough. A shop with a good selection of switches should have a lighted rocker DPDT switch.

Oh were it just so simple. The switch I am trying to replace is actually a multi part switch. It is a single throw, three pole.

One pole is normally closed, goes open when the switch is thrown.

The other is a dual pole, ganged, single throw normally open switch.

I suspect that I am going to have to have one custom fabricated.

Try these suppliers:

graingers.com

mcmaster.com

mscdirect.com

Try searching on Yahoo or AltaVista for switches.

Sounds complicated for a hazard switch. What's in the circuit?

Maybe Midlife has some suggestions, try sending him a private message.

Good luck!!
