    What car is it?

    It's usually the indicator relay which dependant on the car will be built into the hazard switch.

    Costs about £40 from main dealers.

    Defo that then mate, pretty straightforward fix as well, just make sure you use a cloth or something as not to scratch the surround when taking the hazard switch out.
