The most common faults are the flasher units, turn signal stalk, failed turn signal housing, or a wiring harness fault. You have done well in replacing the bulbs first as this is the first step in diagnosis. A qualified Technician such as one from YourMechanic will be able to diagnose your turn signal fault and make any repairs required to resolve them.
