How to turn them off after air bag deployed

My car has 10000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. The hazard light switch may have been damaged during the event that the airbag was deployed. Get the airbag replaced and reset the airbag light and see if the hazard lights go out. On newer cars, the hazard lights will flash as the vehicle is in a collusion as a safety feature for oncoming drivers. If you need further assistance with your flashing lights issue, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
