4 way hazard flasher switch. The lettering has probably been worn away.
Under the seat near the battery box, you should see two silver flasher cans, one for the turn signals, the other being the hazard flasher.

It could also be a problem with the switch. I had to take mine apart and clean the contacts in the switch to get them to work.

Well, there's your problem right there...

...they only work when there's a hazard - kind like how you only get a tornado when there's a trailer park around.... ;)

careful with the tornado talk.. we are in kansas after all. not real concerned if the hazard flashers work. i was just making sure it was not an essential switch. thanks to all for the help.
