The emergency flasher activates and can't be turned off unless I remove the relay. I installed a brand new relay but the problem comes back after a few minutes. The car is not used often and is always stored in the garage.

    Sounds like the switch is failing. I would check the input signals to the relay to be sure though.

    The relay may need to be replaced completely.
    I had a similar problem with my horn a year ago,
    where it would remain once hitting it, so I replaced
    the relay. The relay should be located in the fuse
    box in your engine bay.
