Hazard lights work but indicators and brakes don't

My ex-mod indicators and brake lights are playing up ie not working at all. But weirdly the hazard works.
Fuses seem ok.
Is the hazard flasher relay the same as the indicator?
Any ideas?
Thanks

Yes. Make sure the hazard connector is firmly seated.

What exactly is going on with brake lights? You have ignition on, step on brake pedal, and no brake lights?

Yes it's the same relay?
Which connector? The one behind the dash switch? Thanks!

Might be a stupid question but have you checked your brake switch?

Exactly! Do you have power to the brake light switch on top of the master cylinder?

So I took out a couple if relays - the flasher and one other - blew the dust out and reconnected. Indicators and brakes are working again.

Not sure why this would work but I'll take it.
