Two things I want to fix...

The first is more of a where the *%^$* is it question. I cannot find the turn signal flasher relay. I have LED tails and need to stop the hyper flash turnsignals with the decreased load. does anyone know where it is?

2nd. What can I do to fix the lights that are going out in my dash, they have just started systematically burning out. half my radio is out, the in dash display controls( compass menu step etc) are out, my lower options(pedals, seats etc are out) the entire climate control section is gone and im tired of guessing lol or turning on the lights to make a change.

any help is a plus

See SuperBrightLEDs.com, they sell special flashers for LED car lights. Also they sell load resistors to fix the same problem using stock flasher.
Not sure where the flasher is located, turn on the flashers and listen/look under the dash by steering wheel. The panel right under the steering wheel is hinged and to open push down on the handle looking tab.
