re: Location of blinker relay...
Thanks MBenz. I was at the fuse box and pulled out two relays almost identical in looks (pulled them one at a time in order to avoid the obvious problem of putting the wrong one in the wrong place) and sprayed the contact pins with electrical contact cleaner. I didn't try to open up the relays (pry the cover off) adn I didn't think to hit the hazard light switch. I'll call her and ask her to try that.
Question - which one of these relays is the one for the hazard/blinkers? Does anyone have a part number? If I recall, one had four pins on it and the other had six pins on it (plus the plastic locating pins).
