Default 2008 Swift Hazards/Flashers won't stop.

Location Barbados, Caribbean, I believe its a japanese model. ZC21 or 31...will confirm. Auto 1.5 , 2008

After heavy rain yesterday, we came home parked fine and went inside. Few moment later I look outside Hazards are flashing. I go to look and I hear relay clicking etc as if they are actually on. Pressing the hazard button does nothing. At times hoever the relay clicks extremely fast that the lights look solid. Tapping the fuse box by the footarea can either cause it to stop or change speed. I assume its there.

Turning on park lights will stop the flashing, turning them back off will make it start again.

I was told it may have something to do with the keyless entry/remote thing. Causing it to flash. I suspect this because while talking with that person, at times while flashing the door locks failed to engage from the switch in the driver door.


Where is the connection or box for this module to see if it got wet?

Been 12 hours now and it still happens, i just disconnected the - on the battery in the mean time till i can get a slot at my electrician.

Any tips? I realise this section of the forum is kinda dead..

I'm guessing condensation across a couple of terminals somewhere (which i suspect as its happened after rain) causing the BCM to go nuts and cuse the hazards to flash. Its all tied together with the security module which takes the ket fob signal and tells the BCM to lock ot unblock the doors. I think its going to be fine once its dried out. Finding the issue however, might take a bit of work.

I left the doors, engine bay open for the whole very hot day with the battery pulled and a 10 minutes drive earlier which carried the car to operating temp.

It's good now for about 5 hours. Hasn't flashed at all. I was actually going to go to an electrician too.

thats confirming my thoughts about condensation on the BCM terminals, which is inside the car. It coulod still be something in one of the fuse boxes under the bonnet, but thats unlikely as the central locking is all controlled from the BCM, not the fuse and relay box in the engine bay. Relay for hazards in engine bay, but control to tell it to turn off and on comes from inside the car cabin.

Now its seemingly "cured" you have to work out what conditions cause it to happen again. Good luck.

I think I will just avoid driving on those heavy rain days. It's hurricane season here so. We also have a 2000 Vitara 2dr which we can use. So the extra clearance will definitely help.

Yesterday was flood level rains in some areas so. It may be just our mistake and not a car problem.

Appreciated.

it still shouldn't happen, as long as the car doesn't get flooded things like this should not happen.
