1978 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon - Turn signals quit working
When I shut the car off the turn signals were working. When I started the car again, neither turn signal would work. all other lights work. I have checked the fuses and they seem to be okay. Any suggestions?

There is a flasher unit that could be bad.It is quite inexpensive and should be located in the area of the fuse box inside the car.There are actually 2 of them,one for the turn signals,and one for the emergency or 4 way flashers.Both should be round,and silver in color.

the fuse box is located lower dash drivers side ,cover/lid usually has list inside to the fuse locations etc, does the four way switch turn the signal lights on ? if so the fuse for the turn signals is probably the issue , if the four ways don't come on it may be the flaher relay which may be in the interior fuse box but if not the fuse box in the engine compartment is the next place to look, hope this helps
Start by checking the fuses that's simple than relay than bulbs last you may have to remove the steering wheel and than replace the entire signal assembly those are pretty much all your options so start with 1 and work your way down the list
