I have a 09 sonata and the hazard lights and turn signal

Customer Question

I have a 09 sonata and the hazard lights and turn signal stopped working. I checked the fuse and it was blown. I replaced the fuse and it immediately blew again.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: what details do you need?
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Hyundai Mechanics generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied).

Hello, this could be a bit tricky , dealing with any possible shorts so.. when does the fuse blow? turns on? one direction? hazards on? or something else

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I just pluged in a new fuse and it blew before I turned anything on
Expert:  Randall C replied 1 year ago.

what actual fuse is blowing?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the hazard fuse
Expert:  Randall C replied 1 year ago.

ok, near certain the flasher is the problem, It is shorted internally, It is behind the crash panel below the sterring column. It is a small box with like 8 wires to it, Pics are not the best but all that is offered to send, I have 2 links attached, One for repair, one pic for location, There is nothing between fuse and the flasher so I have to lean to flasher unit

I have thought it was the flasher as well I just haven't been able to find it. I have the crash pad off and I've looked everywhere with a light and I can't find a black box like the one in the pic/diagram.
Expert:  Randall C replied 1 year ago.

Its there, Just hard for me not being there, Its kind of tucked back, I cant remember on left or right, Maybe take a picture of the area with pad removed, I t may help me

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
here are some pics. I don't see a box with 8 wires going to it
Expert:  Randall C replied 1 year ago.

I guess I can not help, the pics do not help and I cant remember each location for all so i will opt out

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I haven't gotten a response from anyone. Has this issue been referred to a new mechanic?
