I noticed that my wiring harness has emergency flasher provisions. So my questions are,

Did anyone else install them? If so, is all I need a button/toggle switch to activate them? Where did you mount it?

Without knowing what provisions your harness has, I can't offer a definitive answer. A normal hazard warning switch is a 4-pole type which connects to the existing turn signal wiring. Additionally it has a lead which goes to a flasher (not the same flasher as used for the turn signals) and of course the other side of the flasher connects to 12V power.

If you have an aftermarket harness, please post a schematic of it (or a link) and I will be happy to look at it and see what it has.

Thanks for the offer, the harness has everything including flasher. Just confused as to how to activate the flasher without adding a switch and where to locate switch.

Unless the harness came with instructions regarding how to activate this feature, I would still need to see a schematic in order to offer any useful help.

Are you looking for a plug'n'play solution or are you willing to purchase external components which may require additional circuit wiring? Unless the harness came with extra parts I don't know about yet, I'm still expecting that you will need a 4PST switch which will look something like this.

You may also need to get a mounting bracket for the switch if you don't want to drill a hole through the dash.

Thanks again! Just a toggle switch will do.

Please post again when you actually do this. I would VERY much like to hear how it works out.

Purchased toggle switch today, with any luck, meaning wife’s to do list doesn’t override my shop time will have wired tomorrow. Will likely place above emergency brake handle on dash.
