The fact that other than the turn signals themselves, everything else is working indicates to me that htere is something manually mechanical, not electrical casuing your problem. If you replaced the switch mechanism it is possible that in doing so the lever itself was set out of position and cannot operate the signals as it should, or the contact points on the switch itself are not meeting the way they should when the switch does go into position.

2005 Impala, directional signals inoperative. Flashers are working. Replaced the hazard warning switch. Still no directional signals, hazards work. Now, car will not start.Buzzing sound from hazard sw

There is a good possibility that the hazard warning and directional signal lights have nothing to do with the starting or operation of the engine. There are many things that might cause the car to fail to start. The battery must be fully charged, and in good working condition. No corrosion on the terminals. good solid connections. When you turn the key the starter motor should turn the engine over. If that works the carburetor will need gas. If you have gas and spark, the engine should run. Hope that helps.
Turn signals work with the tail lights and parking lights on the front. You should turn on the Head lights and check to see if the tail lights and parking lights come on. You will also want to check to see if the flasher is plugged in. All the light bulbs must be plugged in and working to operate the flasher for the turn signals. good luck

The flasher unit is located under the dash, near the steering column. This could also be caused by a faulty ground wire. Check the wiring for broken, bare, or loose wires or connections.

1993 Geo Prizm turn signals dont work. Hazard lights DO work. Checked fuse several times & its ok. Any suggestions?

You have a bad turn signal switch if the hazards work and the turn signals do not. It has nothing to do with the fuse or the flasher unit. Your switch is bad or you have a bad connection some where.

Flashers, turn signals and brake lights

Try shaking the turn signal lever rapidly. Not to the point of breaking it but you do want to apply a little extra pressure. move it in every direction for about 5 to 10 minutes. do not spray anything into the switch as it will collect dust and dirt in the future. This should get everything freed up and working in the multifunction switch. That sounds like where the problem is coming from.

No instrument panel lights on 1995 Nissan King Cab

Ye, the dimmer switch still works.

I know this because, when I turn on the left direction flasher, the panel lights pulse dimly on and off with the direction light flasher.

Do I have a defective direction light flasher? if so where is it located?

No directional signals

I have had this problem. Indicator didn't work, and made a wining noise.
I sorted mine by removing the steering wheel and the cluster underneath.
The problem was caused by grease on the indicator contacts.
Once clean have worked OK for past year.
