no blinkers

my blinkers stopped working about a week ago...so i replaced the relay under the steering column and still nothing. the hazards work fine so i know it's not the bulbs. any suggestions on things i could try

How's the switch lever? Mine got very loose, but the blinkers still work.

it's not loose and i don't think it would be the lever because my highbeams still work fine it's just the blinkers

silversled can only hope to improve
actually I bet it is the turn signal switch, also run the high beams. mine failed on my 88 325ic so that it would flash brights at on coming traffic if I put a turn signal on...it was the turn signal switch/stalk thing.....

If it's like mine, the fuse box is in the left back area of the engine bay.

i know where the fuse box is...i was asking which fuse led to the blinkers. also my highbeams still work which is leading me to beleive that it isn't the switch...i could be wrong but i'll trying taking it off and seeing if anything is disconnected. are there different connectors for the highbeams and the flashers or do they run together?

those are separate IIRC, there also secondary fuses under the hood.

well that sucks...i just spent the last of my money on next semester's tuition and a short ram intake. if anyone has a Bentley manual could you look up where the blinker fuses are inside the fusebox. if anyone could do that it would be great
