Default 05' PT, flasher relay keeps going bad

Hi there,

My parents have a 05 PT Cruiser. Flasher's stopped working, checked all fuses, and then moved on to replace the Flasher relay. That was a used relay from wreckers. It worked for a month or so, then it burnt out. Figured, it was used so maybe that was just bad luck. Got a new one from Napa and it worked for a couple of days and is bad now too.

Any ideas what could be the cause for this?

Check your rear tail light bulbs..make sure there is no water inside lens.

After posting this, my father was out looking at it, and with the flasher relay out, fuses are blowing when he puts them in, so he was figuring short in wiring somewhere. We'll check the back lights and see.

thanks for the suggestion, and the welcome

EDIT: just spoke to him and he already checked both back lights. Next ideas?

get an electrical diagram for the hazards and warning lights circuit. trace the hot wire down from the fuse for a short to ground. then your problem will be solved.
