Hazard lights

My turn signals have been working erratically (some days they work other days no) for a month or so. Today at lunch I was fooling with them (they worked today) and I turned on the hazard lights and when I turned them off the left side stayed on, even if I turned off the ignition. I had to pull the blinker can thing from the fuse box to stop it. Im afraid the problem is with the switch in the column because the hazard light switch feels funny and Im thinking if the problem was with a turn signal it would go off with the ignition (only the hazard lights stay on). I dont really know what to do next. Is there anything to do before pulling the whole column apart?
Can anyone help me?

Re: Hazard lights

The hazard knob, has screw in the middle and is notched so it doesnt twist on the stem. Slip it in the notch and tighten it down and see what happens. May help.
Grounds in the lighting system will really mess with you. Good place to start is the ground behind the windshield washer resivoir, on the early XJs. A bad ground at a bulb (or burnt out bulb) will mess with the turn blinker.

Re: Hazard lights

Im pretty sure it spins freely on the screw. Is that bad?
