The emergency flashers on your vehicle are separate from your turn signals, in fact in my vehicle the flashers have worked even when the battery is dead. If in doubt, test your emergency flashers when the turn signal isn't working. I'm sure the flasher will still come on.

If the turn signals are not working it may just be a fuse. Most fuse boxes are under the dash, inside the vehicle. There are several fuses for various electrical components. They can be purchased anywhere that sells auto parts and are not expensive. I used to carry a "miscellaneous package" for emergencies. Refer to your owners manual if you have one. Also, if you have connected the vehicle to a trailer and the turn signals didn't work after that, you may not have returned the "wiring" to its "non trailer" status. It has happened to me!!

It certainly could be a flasher! There are three main things to check if you have a turn signal or turn signals out. Check your bulb(s), check your fuse(s), and check your flasher. If these three all check out ok, then there is likely an electrical or circuit problem that would need to be diagnosed. If you are uncomfortable or unsure how to check these, I'd recommend having an ASE Certified Technician look into it, especially if it appears to be electrical or circuit related. Great question, Carl!
