Default Another problem with 06 PT complaint

Is anyone else having a problem finding that darn
emergency flasker button on the dashboard? Five time
we've tried to turn on the flashers while we were driving
in bad traffic and had trouble finding it without taking your
eyes off the road for more than a couple of seconds.

It seems poorly light/marked and in a terrible location low on the
dashboard.

I don't mind it there. It is where Mercedes has been putting it for years.

In your other post, you mention you've gone about 1,000 miles total.
5 times in 1,000 miles??? GOOD that you can't find the button - you use it too much - It's meant for if you're disabled on the side of the road.
Damn 4-way flashers take away information - are you braking? Turning? (not that many people signal any more anyways).
Sorry for the rant, but a pet peeve of mine - every time it snows I see the 4-way flasher parade of the "sky is falling" brigade....

Perhaps you think I use it too much but if you lived where
I do where we have two interstates and a turnpike all within
5 miles of each other and a over 200 trucking terminals with
literally 1000's of tractor trailer trucks on the road you would
use them more often too. I use them whenever I feel I am in
danger of being rear-ended or in any other situation that I feel
is life-threatening. To each his own.

I am with you there if evryone used them that way 90% of the people on the roads would drive full time with the flashers on

Maybe an "Armored Up" Humvee in hunter orange would be more appropriate?
I agree with QSD, you may be more visible with your flashers on but those driving around you haven't got a clue what you're going to do next and they may assume that you don't either. This increases the likelyhood that someone will not "guess" your next move correctly and actually cause the accident you're trying to avoid.
