The hazard switch smoking itself was common. Just get a new one. Ford redesigned them to be less prone to doing that.

The switch on my 99 Explorer has been doing this for a while as well. I found by jiggling the hazard switch the left blinker turns off. I've been meaning to pick one up but it hasn't been my top priority yet, thinking about buying a parts Explorer for other projects and just taking the switch from that. Adsm08, what years did they make an improved switch on?
