I have replaced two hazard switches within 8 months. The hazard switches I bought are Japan made and are very cheaply made! Anyone have a suggestion?

I just spotted this question, which you posted as a comment.  

Yes, there are cheap Chinese replacement switches on the market, and they do not last very long.  I suggest you buy a good quality switch from Holden in the UK.  They bought the exclusive rights to reproduce Smiths instruments and switches.
