He has a point, in some cars if the bulb is out the blinker won't work. Kind of a "hey your light is burnt out" warning.

The flasher's should be located on or damn near close to the fuse panel itself.

I've had the same problem twice, and it was a burnt bulb in the taillights, and thats usually what the problem is on most cars.

Make sure the harness under the steering column is connected tight. Mine came loose one time and the signals stopped blinking.

Electricity takes the path with the least resistance. In your taillight panel you have 3 bulbs, check those to see if they are burnt out. Go down to autozone and replace all your bulbs in the back panel. That is 6 bulbs. The reverse and the other two are different types though. But At 2.50 a pack 2 in a pack 8$ is all you need. What happens is when one burns out your electricity takes the path of another bulb and will overload it. So if you hit your blinker and all you get is a solid arrow it is the cars way of saying you got a bulb out. It has little or nothing to do with flasher usually.

My front right turn signal burnt out. :(
Hey, I need to replace mine, and my 02 SS looks just like the tire-smoking beast you have pictured. Did you go through the bottom to get at it, or from the top? Did you have to pull out the lamp housing? And yes, one bulb out will kill the turn signal on that side.
