Hello. Aside from the light combination switch, there are some other components that need to be functioning properly in order for the turn signals to work. If there is a problem with the turn signal relay, turn signal bulbs, or the turn signal wiring, this will cause your turn signals to stop working. You should have a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic, come out and run a diagnosis on your turn signal system to pinpoint what needs to be fixed to get your turn signals working again.
