Default Hazard Lights Won't Turn Off

I just pulled apart the dash to change the lights behind the dials and all went well, well almost.

When I hooked the battery back up, the flasher were on and would not turn off. I have check the relay in the steering wheel, the fuse under the hood and I am now at a loss! Does anyone have any ideas? If I have hit the switch putting the housing around the steering wheel back together, how difficult is it to replace?

Thanks Wolfman!

Does it sound like I bumped something with the switch or is there maybe a reset that needs to be completed since I had the battery disconnected?

BTW, I will hit the second link in a little while!

I sent Wolfman a PM, but I will also toss this out to the masses.

I pulled the fuse for the hazards and when I put the air cleaner back on, the check engine light is now on. Would these be connected?

(I know that I am jumping the gun on Wolfman, but want to get some reassurance before I retire for the night!)

Need to know what year your PT is so I can get a feel for it. The '06 and up PT's have the emerg flasher in the center console. Not sure about <'05's.
