Default Odd turn signal problem

2005 mazda b3000 Dual Sport Auto

When ever i turn on my signals they will flash for about 1-5 times then just go out. it does not matter what side (right left). im at odds as too what could be causing this issue. i though maybe a relay but cant find one listed in the owners manual. what else could it be.

thanks Sean

If you turn off the signal and restart will it go another 1-5 times?

Check trailer connection wires, especially if you have never used them.
Replace Flasher, they are cheap.

I like it when things catch fire and explode, which means I do not have your best interests in mind.

Should be under the dash near the steering column, square plastic box/relay.
Turn on the key, and then turn on the turn signal, repeat as needed, you should be able to pin point it by sound and then feel.

I would buy a replacement first so you know what to look for.
