Question type: Maintenance & Repair

hi i have fixed all the lighting in my front area. it is all working now. but my
blinkers aren't. when i turn on my hazards. they work like normal. when i put
my lights on they work like normal. if i turn the signal to right or left. they
don't work. only when i brake the 2 lights in the car turn on and the outside
turns on( front ) can somebody troubleshoot this. or is it something wrong
with the grounding wire ? i had problems with my right hand light unit that is
all fixed now i just took the left out and did the same thing on the right and it
worked. i hope you have awnsers plz help ! sorry for my bad english guys it
is not my 1st language.
