Default Where's the flasher relay clicker thingy?

Hello -

Maybe the answer is obvious, but I expected to find the turn-signal flasher control relay in the fuse box. Since I can hear it, I guess that means it's somewhere in the console. Is it under the plastic that covers the steering wheel?

Thanks,

CarloSW2

Year helps It is on the BACK Side of the I/P Panel lower left(towards front of car) side. It is a rather sophisticated unit.

Oops, sorry about that. It's a 1999 SW2.

Its just next to the chime module which is in the lower center, towards the front.

Thanks!

The reason I ask is that I am researching LED turn signals. But I don't want the signals to flash faster as a function of the reduced amp load.

Once I see it live, I am going to see if any of these flasher units can be swapped in :

I won't do do an LED swap if it flashes too fast.

No, it can not. The Saturn unit is different. Do an advanced search for rapid flashing in the tech and mods section and you will find the instructions on how to change a couple of resistors in the factory flasher to slow it down. IIRC Low Saturn provided the original info.

If you can not find it I may have it in the file.
