Hello,

The flasher is integrated into the hazard flasher/switch. Here is a diagram (below) that show its location and how to change it.

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

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.

Check out the diagrams (Below)

Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

Cheers
