Emergency Flasher/Hazard

My car came without one when I bought it...some customization done by prior owner. Does the switch itself have the relay built into it like an old Mercedes-Benz? Also does anyone have a schematic of this circuit because not even sure if the wires are tucked away or non-existent/repurposed. Thanks

You didn't indicate the year of your car, but regardless of the switch (pull type on early cars, pushbutton on later ones) they all use the turn signal flasher.  Find a wiring diagram for your year car and you should be able to reconnect it.  Unless the PO did a bunch of wire clipping, I'll bet you'll find the disconnected wires (or plug, depending on year) right where the old switch used to llive.  


Bet it was a push button switch, and the PO removed it because it wouldn't turn off--a not uncommon malady with the pushbutton type flasher switch (it goes in the console).
