Hello group

Have been working on trying to DIY fix fast/rapid blinking issue with turn signal passenger side. Replaced both front and rear bulbs, but no luck. Tried prying up the connectors at base of front bulb (per YT recommendation) but also no luck.

Started down rabbit hole of replacing the flasher relay switch, but could not locate the existing relay to pull it.
Was not able to find reliable source of where it might be, but am concerned that changing it out might be beyond my skills. Seems like it should be reachable since the replacement only costs about $15 at most.

? Has anyone successfully replaced a flasher relay switch in their 14 Elantra?

(Also heard rumor that this model does not have a flasher relay - model year change improved the tech - but not sure I believe that )

I know its been quite some time but wanted to chime in in case others have this issue. Had this issue last year and tried the same steps as you.. I ended up swapping the whole socket out from one side to the next and the issue switched sides. I ordered a new socket from the local Hyundai Dealership and have not had the problem since. I think it was under $10.00 ..

Thanks - I did do the replacement socket trick, like you, and it worked! Ordered from the main Hyundai mfg website, and order was fulfilled by Randy Wise Hyundai out of Flint MI. Part #92166-3X000 ("Socket").

Side note - seems like bulbs on these cars burn out frequently/have short lives. Is it endemic? or am I just seeing bad bulbs because I'm looking?

Does the 4way hazard blink at a normal speed, if all turn signal bulbs work, change the directional flasher, if n/g use a 4way flasher for the turn signals until you fix it.
