    There is a fuse box in the interior of the car as you sit in the drivers seat it is at your left foot. The are 12 fuses in the fuse box one is marked "turn" it is a 10 AMP fuse. Try turning on and off the hazard light switch a half dozen times as well.

    If your absolutely sure the fuses are OK and want to check the turn signal switch. Check with an OHM meter (ignition off) that the connection at the turn signal switch where the green/orange wire and green/black wire have continuity on left turn, and green/orange wire and green/yellow wire have continuity on right hand turn.

    This was awesome advice. I had blinker troubles also. I was repairing a friend's Corolla's dash after a break-in. The stereo was "removed", and much of the center console was trashed. Re-installed/re-built much of the dash, climate control box, switches, etc. Sure enough, I lost turn signals. After I turned the hazard lights on and off a few times, they're back. Nice job, Patrick!

    I,too, had a no turn signal problem for a 1996 Toyota Corolla wagon. I checked the 7.5 ohm fuse and the magical blue plastic box right above it. Both were good and intact. I re-installed them both. And, voila, I NOW HAVE turn signals. No money spent!
    Of course, I'm in Portland, Oregon, where there is perpetual drizzle and a possible corrosion. But, I saw none.
    But, go figure, because I can't.
    Happy to have turn signals, Paul F.
