I need a new or good used hazard warning switch for my GT 6 Mark III. Rocker type also used on later Spitfires. I'm also looking for a hatch latch handle w/ key (I have an older handle to trade), and a good used license plate light plinth that sits on the top of the rear bumper. Trunk latch from Spitfire will not work on GT 6.

John, a couple of different ones were used. I think 5 wire and 6 wire. The very early ones only had four connectors. The later 5 connectors were very small slip on while the later ones had the standard 1/4 inch plugs.
So, what kind of connection is going to do you.
They are getting harder to find than the GT6 interior light and cover.
I'll look around a see what I come up with.

Wayne -

Mine has 6 posts, with only 2 wires being connected. At least that was the way it was when I disconnected it to re-do the dash. Is there a way to bypass the hazard switch altogether and still have the turn signals work?

John, by passing the circuit is kinda what the switch does. So connecting the two wires together will take the switch out of play for normal driving, but if you need the hazard, that could be a problem.
Now that I know someone was figuring out a way to make things work, have a look and see it the other wires are hanging in there.
Don't you just love DPO, but we all do what will work at the time. Sometimes we go back and make it right, sometimes not so much.

Best thing to do is find the post in the spitfire group and see how the switch is wired. The numbers on my switch didn't match up, I finally got the hazards to work when I figured the switch out. Green and pink is hazard power. Kyle.
