Hello and thanks for using JustAnswer.I will try my best to help you with your question.
Sounds like the turn signal switch is the problem. What happens is dirt and debris fall down into the emergency switch button on the top and later wears into the switch causing failure. Replace the turn signal switch to fix the problem.

Is there a fuse to try first?
Expert:  A. Penland replied 2 years ago.

Not really. Because if it was the fuse, the emergency flashers would not work either.

The turn signals and emergency flashers get power from the same fuse.

OK - I'll go to the parts store tomorrow & read the manual - if that doesn't work I'll c
take it to a mechanicThanks

It should fix it. Also, try wiggling the switch in the left or right turn signal position and see if the lights come on.
