Default 93' Flasher/Blinker Problem...

Hey guys. I have a 1993 SL2. The car has just been sitting around for a bit. Last i drove it i believe the turn signals and flashers worked. Not to sure about the flashers. Anyway, I noticed today that the turn signals and flashers would not work today. I had all other lights, just not the turns or flashers. I was also able to flash my high beams.

I checked the fuses inside and outside the car. The blinker and hazard flasher fuses looked good. They were not blown. So i checked the relay for the flasher inside the car. I did not hear it clicking so i went out to Advance Auto and picked up the exact same one. I forgot the brand name but it was the same. Not sure if it was OEM, probably not.

So i put the new relay in and nothing. So i pulled it out and put the blinker to the "on" or "making a left" position and then i put the relay in. Then i heard clicks and it seemed as though that when i started to slide the relay in and got that clicking then pressed it all the way in i got both blinkers to work. Now when i hit the hazard switch, i got nothing and after i got nothing out of the hazard switch i would then get nothing out of the blinkers unless i did the same things with the relay. That is, pull it out and slide it back in in such a way that i hear ticking then press it into place.

So my question is whats up? I noticed that on the new relay some of the wording was different. It said something like "4 way flasher relay" And the old (not working) relay said "4+2 bulb flasher". Its the same part number but those things were a bit off. Im wondering if the relay is the wrong relay and thats why the hazard lights wont flash.

Any idea? I searched the forum but could not find anything that was similar to my problem. Thanks in advance for any help or tips.
