The brake locking up the flashers is a feature, not a bug. It allows
traffic behind you to know that you've applied the brakes.
You flashers are controlled by a small button on the steering column,
correct? The switch for that is part of the signal light switch, and is
probably borked. It isn't *too* difficult to replace, but it does
require pulling the steering wheel. The difficult part, as I recall, is
threading the harness down the column tube (but it's been over a decade
since I did that and may be misremembering).
