It's really easy. There is a blank filling a hole directly below the hazard sw. Use a small screwdriver, and carefully prise this out. Insert your finger into the hole, and up into the back of the hazard switch and ease it forward. you can prise it out with a screwdriver also, but i found this method offered less chance of damage to the dash.

On a side note, my 2001 wagon has the heated seats & so the blank is below not only the hazard relay switch but the heated seats control knob. So it's unreachable from the blank spot. That being said I just popped the switch out as described. (I used a butter knife) to get the face of the button off then pliers to pull the switch out. Easy as pie.

Where is the flasher relay located on a 99 oldsmobile intrigue?

there is not exactly a flasher relay for this car. technically your hazard switch is the flasher relay. you can get this "hazard switch " for about $30 on gmpartsdirect.com. i had to replace mine last year and i was also under the impression that i needed a flasher relay since the turn signal would just stay on. I had to fudge around with hazard switch push it a few time for the signals to work. that is when i figured it out that hazard switch is the flasher relay. i hope this helps.
