Default Turn signals quit working completely

Searched and found the question before but after checking the bulbs (fine) and fuse (fine) I'm at a loss as to why I have no turn signals at all. Just took the car out of storage and I'm not sure if they worked at first or not as I didn't notice until an hour of so of driving that they weren't working. Any suggestions?

turn signal switch.....it's in the column and kind of a pain in the *** to change. Mine went out a while back, 2 tickets later and I finally decided to change mine last weekend. It's about $32 from autozone and requires a steering wheel puller and lockplate remover, both of which are also available for rent from autozone.

or on second thought, and a cheaper fix...would be to replace the flasher (thing that makes the bulbs flash, located under the driver's side dash). Try that first.

I got the same problems, my hazards work but not my turn signals, I also replaced the flasher and one of the turn signals worked but there was no light at all for the other turn signal so most likely is the turn signal indicator.

There are two flashers.
One is for the left/right signals,
The other one is for the hazards.

If one side works and the other doesnt, then there is nothing wrong with the flasher.

Turn on the hazards and look for the bulb that either isnt flashing, flashing erratically, or not lit at all. That will be the culprit. The front and rear turnsignals are dual filament. The dim fiament is for the "parking" lights and the brighter filament is for brake lights and signals.

Once you've found the offending bulb inspect its socket. Either the socket has corroded or the bulb has blown.

If all the above are in working order and both left/right signals still don't work, then it could be the switch in the stalk.
