TURN SIGNAL PROBLEMS

1999 Dodge Dakota • V8 4WD Automatic • 140,000 miles

I have a 99 dodge dakota 5.2L 318, and my turn signals went out. We checked all fuses and even replaced the blinker box. I am debating on if replacing the turn signal switch could fix the problem. The turn signal switch has my wiper controls on it as well, and they work but not my blinkers or hazards work. Should buying a new switch fix my problem or should I take it to someone who can do more?

Did you use a voltage tester at the applicable fuse/s? The hazzard fuse circuit, should be hot all the time. The one for your turn signal should go hot when you turn on the key. Note diagram below.

If that checks out, probably the multifunction switch, but, If you want to get under the dash and check wiring circuits for voltage, we can do that, also.
