The customer service professionals employed at most big chain auto parts retailers are not mechanics, but sale associates. Some locations will install wiper blades and replace batteries within reason, but these individuals are not necessarily trained in the repair of automobiles. If the turn signals do not work at all, you may have a blown fuse or some electrical problem along the turn signal circuit causing them to fail. Consider hiring an experienced technician like one from YourMechanic who can come out and take a closer look at the inoperative turn signals and offer a more personal diagnosis.
