It was a cheap 10$ do it yourself fix. My emergency flashers still worked but my turn signals would blink super fast and then stop. The relay is the whole emergency light button. Pry it out with small screw driver and put new one it.
Flashers would work intermittantly and then one would work then fail and vice versa.
