I'm planning to fit a hazard warning light wiring circuit to my Fulvia Zagato. It is one of the small concessions to more modern technology that I'm happy to make, to make the car a little more usable by modern car standards. I've designed a circuit that should do the job, using the pre-existing spare pull switch in the middle of the dashboard. It involves using a double pole relay switch and a higher current rated flasher relay to activate all 6 indicator bulbs at the same time. I was just wondering if anyone else had done/attempted this already and what if any snags they ran into?
Many thanks,
Alan

Hi Alan,
Yes I've equipped my Coupe with hazard lights.
Managed to get a pull switch from a series 1 Beta that matched.
It's only a 2 pole switch, so used a relay to connect the LH & RH indicator supply wires to an additional standard flasher unit.

You should find the LH & RH supply wires coming out of the indicator stalk switch. Blue I think.

I did it a while ago so can't remember the exact wiring configuration, but sounds like your on the right track.

Please publish your circuit - and then put it on the technical information thread.  I suspect there are a number of us would like to do this.

I completely rewired the Stratos replica a couple of years ago and struggled with the circuits for hazard warning lights causing an issue with the indicator switch (Fiat) in that indicating either left or right turned everything on when bench tested....

So I bought one of these kits.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HAZARD-WARNING-KIT-FOR-TRIKES-BIKES-ESSENTIAL-FOR-MOT-/201913152494?hash=item2f02f633ee:g:EY0AAOxy14VRRLP7

and merely replaced the on/off switch with a pull switch with a waring light in it. I also wired in a secondary motorcycle buzzer to remind me that the indicators/hazards are on. Because it's NOISY inside the Stratos replica!

Its a bit of a cheat, but I purchased and LED emergency light with a magnet that you simply place on the car's roof when you hit a problem.
Saves messing about with the wiring and ideal for older cars?

Yes, certainly David. I was planning to do just that. Going to see how the job goes first and how difficult/successful it is before I post up my circuit design. I want to make sure I test it thoroughly too before posting up any further information on how to do it. Don't want any of you guys to start blowing fuses either metaphorically or physically!

Watch this space for more info in due course.

Ciao,

Alan

I bought 2 and they are great, as they have various flashing configurations.
I bought these for simplicity and to save interfering with the original wiring, although by the time I bought these I'd already obtained the motorcycle flasher kit.

Interestingly the circuit is available in the English drivers handbook for both 1300/1600 coupe/sport as supplementary wiring diagrams for cars fitted with emergency signalling (hazard warning). Uses a multi pole change over panel switch and separate flasher. I have this installed on my 1600HF and 1600 Sport I think by the factory....
