the horn and brake light have common power (accessory) and ground.

nothing about the turn signals is associated with or common to the other two function.

check the fuse block behind the left side cover. check all fuses with an ohm meter. replace any blown fuses.

check for loose or faulty battery cables.

- if not a blown fuse, you are looking for a grounded circuit (wire with power on it). this can be as easy as looking for a wire with the insulation worn off and having a bare wire contacting ground, or as difficult as a wire which is simply zip tied too tight to the frame.
