The flashers and hazards are run through the same relay. The power supply to the flasher and hazards sytem is run through that relay. This way when engaged, the flasher relay will kick off and then reset like a breaker causing the flash. If that flasher relay has failed to reingage, you won't have either. I would need to know the vehicle to be able to tell you what it looks like and where it is located exactly, but look for a metal cylendar about an inch tall and an inch and a bit in diameter. It will have two prongs set 90 degrees of each other and should be located on the interior fuse panel or near to it. You may also have a larger square relay if it is on a newer vehicle. This type uses a timer circut vs load heat to flash, but should as well have 2 pins set 90 degrees of each other.

WHY DO I HAVE TO POUR WATER ON MY FUEL RAIL AFTER
Hi James,That is a real good question. Have you checked the fuel pressure on the fuel rail to see how much pressure there is when it refuses to start? It sounds like you may be losing your fuel pressure because of the fuel returning to the tank when the engine is hot. This could be due to a faulty fuel pump assembly or a faulty fuel pressure regulator.Try this: When it doesn't start, turn the key OFF and wait about 15 seconds, then turn it back to the ON position (do not try to start yet). Repeat this a second time, only this time turn the switch to the START position. If the engine starts, then it is definitle due to loss of fuel pressure in the fuel rail. You will then need to test your fuel pressure with a gauge and plug off the return line to determine if the problem is being caused by the regulator or the pump.
