No relay is used. The hazard switch is the control for the turn signals.

Pull radio Trim Panel/facade away from dash to access Hazard switch. Taking the air vent out is another way of accessing it.

Here are some tips for you.

A Common problem is the flasher timer will click like the turn signals are on but the turn lever is in the neutral position.

Before condemning the Hazard switch/timer, first remove steering column cover to access Turn signal switch.

Remove the 4 wire connector on top of switch.

If Clicking stops then replace or disassemble switch to clean contacts.

The contacts wear and cause a fine copper connection and produce a
situation as if the switch was activated.
