Turn signal issue

So, new suspension should be here tomorrow morning. On to another issue. I googled the hell out of this and cannot figure it out! My hazards all work just fine, but, turn signals I get nothing. I tried a new switch on the column, same thing, no turn signals. Could it be that the hazard switch is fine, but itís not allowing turn signal indication to function?

You are checking TSs with ignition ON, correct?

Yes sir, that is correct. Ignition on, car running. I do have a very good amount of automotive knowledge, normally I would start with a flasher, but, from what I have read, the focus doesnít have one, itís the signal switch in the column and the e-flasher switch. I could be wrong though and just gathering misinformation.

Hmm, the reason the hazards work is because they're controlled by the button. Something must be wrong between the the turn signal switch which as you said, is also the flasher relay, and the lights. Check fuses under the dash, I don't recall which one is the TS but it could be that since hazards are completely different fuse and relay.

Copy that and already done. My best guess is the switch. The local salvage yard gave me 8 of them for 20 bucks. Has to be one good one in the bunch. Trying to do the rear springs now, already ripped the finger open. Front is done though, took 25 minutes to swap struts, the rear is kicking my ass.

The 'flasher' for the TS and Hazards is part of the GEM. When you have the hazard flashers on are all 6 lamps plus the dash indicators flashing?

When you turn on the TSs do the dash indicators light up?

Verify fuses F33 (15A) and F36 (7.5A) in the CJB.

Are you dropping the rear LCAs to get the springs out?

Tail turns light up for e-flashers, grill turns light up for e-flashers, dash indicators light up for e-flashers. Try to use the turn signals, nothing on exterior and nothing on dash. I pulled every fuse out of the box today, one by one, every one of them is good, none missing.

What about the two in the front bumper cover (side markers)?
