I have a 97 pontiac grand prix gtp ive hadit for about a month it runs fine but has it quirks! Anyways my directionals have worked right along until today around 2 oclock I went to drive to class and my directionals are not working! The fuses are all good and relays they're not coming on inside or out of the car! The hazards are not working either everything else works! Im praying its not a ground! Please help me and enlighten me on what this would be. Once again they dont turn on on the dash or on the exterior of the car

If your fuses are good, then your flasher has blown. You'll need to replace it. Good news, they're not expensive. You can find them at any parts store.

You could check the ground wires. But there are other possible causes, such as corroded connectors, broken wires, switches, etc. If your electrical system is encountering problems in different systems, then your problem will be closer to the source of power or distribution, and needs to be traced from there.
