How to add hazard light circuit to 65 Elky

I am finally replacing my old harness completely with a Haywire harness that has 17 circuits compared to my 6 now. It is color coded for GM, but is not specific to my car and has 2 flashers, one for signals and one for hazard, but no stock hazards on a 65 Elky diagram. Can anyone tell me how to splice in the hazard wire,and a switch? Haywire is no help as I bought from a reseller. Thanks , Crash

hi,
with no hazard switch, you'll need to get a three pole switch, it can be single or double throw (3PST or 3PDT). you can also a use four pole switch...you'll use three of the four. at the turn signal switch connector, find the left front and right front signal wires (light blue and dark blue). also find the brake switch wire (white). a 3PST switch will have 6 terminals arranged in a 2 by 3 pattern.
connect wires to each of the above wires and extend to your switch, connect them to the switch, one to each terminal, in a row. connect the other three in a row terminals together and extend wire to the hazard flasher. if you connect to the proper side of the hazard flasher, the lights will flash when the switch is in the on position. if they stay on (no flashing), switch the wire to the other terminal.

I wired in my door locks to the turn signals so the lights would flash when I locked/unlocked the doors. (Made it easier to make sure it was locked as I walk away). I just wired the power from the door lock signal to the left and right turn signal wires under the dash. I put a diode on both wires so I wouldn't get feed back when the signals were operating. I would think you could do the same with your hazard flasher. Use any kind of on/off switch.

Hazard switch

Thanks for the feedback, after I get all the regular wires in and working I'll give it a try. Crash
