Yes, but that relay does not act as the flasher. The flasher is in the hazard switch, which then controls the relay.
I've replaced about a half-dozen hazard switches for the same concern you are having which is why I am confident it will solve your turn signal problems.
Certainly, I have no problems with you wanting to make sure my answer is correct.
Keep in mind it is not a relay... if you say relay at the parts counter they might not know what you are talking about because it's more commonly known as the hazard switch. According to the program I am using, the OEM part number is XXXXX but part numbers can change multiple times so that may not be accurate. Just mentioning hazard switch should be enough, they should have no issues finding it and may even have it in stock for you.
