Hazards flasher relay

Recommended Posts

Is the flasher relay for the hazard lights / turn signals four-pin or five-pin?

My 83 turbo came with a 4-pin relay (URO 14551) stuck in the space (upper right, left of steering wheel).  I notice it has five slots and looks like 5 pins in the wiring diagram.  I ordered a new five-pin relay (HELLA TB64) from a reputable supplier and the new one arrived with four pins (and still doesn't work).

Jenna had a US 83, there's some flasher discussion in here.  You might enjoy the whole thread-

Her 83 had 5,my 85 had 4 pin relays.  Having gone to LED's, I'm now using a reversed three pin electronic flasher.

Turns out it's four-pin.  

I had confused the flash relay (which is located up front next to the headlamps) with the hazard relay (which is a flash relay)...a semantic confusion.  

I was able to confirm for myself with a very bright flashlight shone into the relay outlet, which revealed a brass connector in all but the center slot, meaning only the four outside slots made a connection and the center slot is there for no reason. SJ and JAE confirmed as well.
