Dont think we have hazard lights on ps4
I should make sure we're talking about the same thing. I'm assuming you mean the beacon lights. On XB1 they show up in the help menu the upper left of the screen.

Beacons are not hazards =)
Hazards are the double blinkers ^_^

Hazards work on console aswell using the keyboard. @redglasses try the basic controls with a keyboard it should work. A standard USB keyboard is all I'm using. It's about 8 years old so not even Windows 8 or Windows 10 native and definitely kept a USB 3.0

Xbox one has some keyboard recognition. Mouse not so much as mouse support isn't implemented yet. Not all keyboard functions work but some do I've tested this myself with general controls found online
i didnt know that as i play on ps4

It's good to have a keyboard and mouse sometimes. Personally, all I want is for giants to be a bit more fair to console users and start putting mods up that use scripts (slow bees for example) that's the one thing that lets the whole fs game down hugely on console

Giants can't do that. The console makers won't allow it.

So basically ...
You are trying to rebuild your console in to a PC just to discover that there are some limits?

Did you know that you can connect a PC to a TV screen and play games on it using a gamepad (with MANY other controller options available)?

I do not wanna think it is true but something tells me that developing a game for both PC and Consoles is actually holding the PC platform back due to the limitations of the consoles ... :hmm:

Now that I got that of my mind ...

On consoles ... can you remap your buttons?

When I was playing FS on my PC using the XB1 gamepad, I went through a lot of remapping the buttons, so that I was able to play the game WITHOUT having to use the keyboard at all.
Doing this with some thought put in to it ... there are plenty of button combinations to use that covers all the original game commands and a lot of extra commands used for specific mods to go on top of that!

Also, if GIANTS would ad "hold" and "double click" as an option when mapping buttons ... there would be more than enough possibilities!

Best practice (if possible) is to remap everything according to your own liking ... that way the inputs become intuitive and you do not have to struggle with "remembering" them ... :this:

^^ingame you cannot, Xbox has an application that allows you to remap buttons on your Xbox controller, it is pre-downloaded onto the console
