    Could be a bad ground wire or the flasher that plugs into your fuse pannel. first place to check anyway.For the grounds, locate them and if they are still hooked up remove and sand down to make a fresh contact.If not then replace the flasher!
    Good luck

    It really does sound like the actual flasher fuse is shot. A couple of years ago, my truck did the exact same thing, but if I fiddled with the turn signal handle enough I could get it to work. It also signalled really wonky at times. I finally replaced the flasher and voila- fixed. Sometimes the easy fix does work!

    off hand i would say there's 2 flashers...
    round things on the fuse pannell...

    i may be wrong....
    flasher though is an easy fix about 4 bucks tops...

    I agree with **b**, swap your hazard relay w/your blinker relay.....that should solve your problem....them go buy the relay you took out...$2-$4.
