Probably you have a shorted bulb, most cases the short is in the bulb socket or an aftermarket lamps assembly. Very common this days is people trying to replace the stock bulbs with the "cheap" LED from China...

Thanks! I have not replaced any bulbs or lamp assembly. The problem started at once.

Basically the situation is simple: somewhere there is a place where the "hot" side is getting to the ground side, when is shouldn't. Not that the solution may be all that simple to find. I suggest you start to check for a "ground" (or earth in other parts of the world) on some part of your turn signal circuit. 1-Check that all bulbs light up. if one is dim or out; replace it. 2- next look at all the parts of the wires; looking for any worn spots (a break in the insulation) that touch metal or another worn spot on another wire. 3- make sure the fuse you use is the correct size (see owners manual,on the fuse box or elsewhere on this site) 4- an inexpensive circuit tester will be a big help if you are comfortable using one.
