The flasher relay can get stuck. It is usually a 3 pronged, small, cylinder or cube plugged into the fusebox.

    Another thing that can cause then not to blink, is if there is not enough current draw, because one of the bulbs is burned out. The flasher works on heat.

If the indicator stays on but does not flash it will likely be the flashing unit. To repair remove the flashing unit (probably a black cube) from the fuse box under the steering wheel and take the cover off the unit with a small screwdriver. Inside the flashing unit is a capacitor which dictates how fast the indicators will flash and is most likely the faulty part. desolder the capacitor and replace with a new one of the same type (checking correct polarity) and presto indicator flashes as good as new. Putting in a different capacitor value will make indicator flash faster or slower depending on the value.

I did this recently and worked great.

Alternatively replace the whole unit.
