Turn Signals and Hazard Lights

Do you need to take the steering column apart when replacing the switch on a 1997 Ford Taurus if the turn signals and hazard lights have shorted?

You do have to take the steering column apart including the air bags. Due to the possiblilty of deploying the air bags and the complicated steering column, I suggest you take it to a garage.

The emergency flashers are "ON". The two wires that feed the lights are shorted together. Check the front turn signals also for both being "ON"
