Hello. The exact issues weren’t too clear. Are the lights coming on at all? Is only one light having problems or are both? One thing that you can do is turn on the left and then right turn signal, and then look for bulbs that do not turn on and check those bulbs. A blown out bulb will keep the light from blinking. If you need help having this checked, a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your car’s location to inspect the turn signals and guide with a repair.
