My directinals do not go on but my fuse is fine, what do i do, ? i cant find the flasher switch

The flasher - if available - is usually under the dash around the steering wheel or to the left, or on the side in that location. One other possibility is behind the glovebox or under dash in that location. Looks like a white or tin pot the size of a roll of quarters cut into 4, or about an inch or so high - just pull it out to remove but can only go in one way.
Could be the signal mechanism in the steering wheel which is an intricate process to replace the complete unit having to remove the steering wheel and other parts. Be careful as the wire leading to the horn must be pushed in-ward (into the steering column) and then twisted gently) and then it pops out, spring attached. A puller is probably necessary to remove steering wheel and then perhaps a plate with a spring under that which needs to be held down to remove a clip on the shaft. Take pics of the process in event of any confusion so you can put together properly.
Good luck.

Check other posts here on how to disassemble the steering column. Is typically the same for most vehicles but telescopic and tilt have their own problems.

check to see if the wire is broken for the passlock/passkey system in the ignition lock cylinder, its common for the copper wire to seperate inside the insulation, when you tilt the column it could have been pushing the wires together enough to touch inside the insulation
