I thought someone else said it worked, sorry I can't confirm it at the moment. I believe the number 2 is the hazards.

I definitely have a older keyboard I could plug into my PS4 if that will even work and try this. I know it's just hazard lights but it would make it so much more realistic for me and probably alot of the American players as we use them on the roads.

If you plug a keyboard into your XBox, you can use most of the PC keyboard commands (FS17). I used to use the keyboard to control my lights (handy when you want to back up and all you have to do is turn on the rear work lights instead of cycle through all of them), beacons and the elusive 4-way flashers. Giants turned this feature off in FS19 and it doesn't work.


(I haven't tried since all of the system updates so I might be misspeaking)

Can someone confirm keyboards on Xbox. And what would the key combinations be if it does work?
Yes I have a keyboard connected to my Xbox. It works but not sure if it will activate the flashers. Might dust off my box when I get home from work and test it

Please let us know if it works or not. If it does I think I will buy me a keyboard just so I can use hazards.

Is there something other than the side panel for PS4 to plug in so I can use hazards? I really don't need the Logitech side panel for my playing
A keyboard
That's what I was wondering but didn't know if any keyboard works with PS4 or if anyone had done it... thanks
That I don't know, I just remember like a year or so ago I was part of a group that was discussing keyboard support on ps4. The Pro was advertised as keyboard support so someone plugged one in to their slim and presto.
Our pc came with wireless peripheries but for xmas my wifes friends got her an "rgb" keyboard that uses usb cord so I may try it later.
started with 17 on pc
current PS4 player 17 and 19

Yes, I was saying there is open possibilities for hazards if GIANTS took time to time to implement it.

That's either the beacon or a turn signal.

R1 and left/right are turn signals. Maybe it's down that's hazards

There is no button for hazards on console without the side panel or keyboard.
