Hazard switch short

I have rewired the all of the indicators due to corrosion. However my hazard switch is still blowing fuses immediately. This preventing from being able to use my turning signals.

I have had this problem on my E21 and it was the actual hazard switch. However, this switch is in perfect conditions.

Any ideas?

Is this 'press-switch-blow-fuse' that quick? Do the turn signals work OK? If turns ok then hazard switch is problem. Go through tests logically..
