Did you change any wiring , tap into any wiring ? There is no flasher relay on your vehicle . It controlled by the BCM !
Turn Signal/Hazard Lamps
The body control module (BCM) is responsible for controlling the turn signals and hazard lamps. When the turn signal switch is placed in either the left turn or right turn position, the BCM receives a signal from the turn signal switch. The BCM then sends an on-off voltage signal to either the left or right turn signals and their instrument panel cluster (IPC) indicator. When the hazard switch is pressed, the BCM receives a signal from the hazard switch. The BCM then will send an on-off voltage signal to all the turn signal lamps. All the turn signal lamps will flash including both IPC turn signal indicators.
Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair ! We on here have no clue what you did . On this newer vehicles ,if you know nothing about automotive electronics you really should take to a professional

Sounds like the flasher unit to me. Normally the emergency flasher and turn signal are separate.

SOURCE: 99 Chevy Tahoe... Rear turn signals, brake lights, and hazards

I had this problem, and to be honest, it happened to the left side about a week later...it's the board that the bulbs plug into...it's a very common problem with this model. So popular that you can normally get the socket board off the shelf at a parts store! it's extremely simple to replace, and I replaced all the bulbs at the same time!

SOURCE: Turn signals and hazard flasher stopped working in

Yes, you are on the right track. More than likely it is a defective flasher relay as one relay controls turn signal and hazard flash. The flasher relay is located behind the left side of the instrument panel.

It's usually under the dash on the driver's side area. What vehicle are you asking for?

2006 equinox turn and hazards stopped working. i


You will need a voltmeter to test any circuits, find where power is lost or not transmitted.

Modern cars have computers everywhere. That's what a Body Control Module is. I think you may have to let a shop look at it.

My turn signals won't come on at all?


check the fuse if good then turn on the hazard lights if they work then you probably need a turn signal flasher which is a separate flasher unit then the hazard one.it usually looks like the hazard one so with the hazards on and locate it then you will know what the signal flasher looks like and you will also know not to change the wrong flasher unit.the signal flasher is often located at or near the under dash fuse panel or somewhere in the dash you don`t say what type of car your talking about.
