The emergency flasher switch contains the relay that controls power to the emergency flashers as well as the turn signals. It is pretty common for turn signal issues to be traced back to the switch. Replacement of the switch is easy and should take no more than five minutes.

Use a small pick to carefully pry the flasher switch (green arrow) out of the dashboard.
