Hazard Light Problems

I'm having problems with my 1993 325i. Whenever I turn off my car the hazard light turn on and stay on (not blinking) until either my battery dies or I unplug my battery. I'm tired of having to unplug my battery, any advice?

Pull out your hazard light switch and unplug the connector from the back. If the lights go off, the switch is bad. If it makes no difference, it's a wiring/relay problem.

are you certain??

try unplugging the brake switch and see if that makes any difference...not sure how that would affect the turn signals, though...
