It'll be tucked in the corner of the engine bay near the brake booster.

thakyou, have checked in the spot and there is no alarm there. As far as we can tell it doesnt have a any alarm. The ute starts and runs perfectly. when you switch the blinkers on you can here the blinker unit behind the dash working, but the lights stay on constantly whether the blinker switch is on or off. the same for the hazzards. the dash blinker indicator lights stay on all the time too.

tried pulling the flasher out of it an seeing whether they go out? And pull the fuse and see if they go out?

Sounds as though something else may have shorted to the blinker circuit and provide continuous power to it... Its rather odd... :/

thanks for your help. we tried pulling fuse it stoped the lights from working but when put back in they came back on. we then borrowed a dash unit out of another ba ute and put it in ours and it fixed the problem, does anyone know if the dash can be fixed or is it best to buy another dash complete.

maybe its not the dash... maybe is just the flasher unit, or the body module?
