Turn Signal flasher location

Electrical problem 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 197000 miles

Sometimes when I use the turn signals or the emergency flashers, when they are turned off the clicking noise keeps on to the point that the signal warning bell chimes. I don't know if this a relay or flasher problem and can't locate it under the dash board. It sounds like it is coming from behind the radio/heater area. I found the relay at O'reilly's Auto parts but don't want to purchase it since I don't know if this is what I need or where whatever part I need goes.

Do you
have the same problem?

Hello,

They had big problems with the hazard switch in these cars which is where the flasher is located. Here is a wiring diagram and a guide to help you test and confirm the problem.

My turn signal stopped working. My hazard lights still work and everything else on my turn signal controls work. Wipers, flashers, and high beams.
So I replaced the turn signal switch but the turn signal is still not working.
So the only thing it can be is the turn signal flasher. I'm trying to find the location of the flasher but I cannot find any info in my car repair Manuel or owners Manuel.

Thanks

Check all your bulbs first to see if they light up when you put switch on and make sure power goe s in an dout of t/s switch. The flasher is part of the body control module.

The switch and relay are built into one unit and are located on the dash, to the right of the instrument cluster.

The turn signal flasher is common to the hazard warning flasher. It is located on the Hazard push button on the dashboard.
