I hope someone answers your question because I have the same car with the same problem.
I already had a connector it the car for trailer lights. It used to work & seems to still be working. But when Haul plugged in trailer lights to it, our turn signals stopped working. The connectors from the trailer were real ratty; I wouldn't be surprised if they hooked up something backwards. They also had to run a separate ground wire to get the lights on the trailer working. I think they had the turn signals working at some point when they were hooking it up.
Symptoms (all started when trailer hooked up):
Things that still work:
I can't find the flasher (if there is one). I can't find my owner's manual. I can't find any clues or fuse diagrams on the Web. (Google has a lot of strange Russian websites that don't have anything to do with the car-annoying.
Richard, did you ever find out a reason for this? I have exactly the same problem.
rickPossible solutionTry the hazard switch
this cuts out the supply to the indicators to prevent overloading the circuit
if the switch has gone faulty the indicators do not normally work.
locate it by turning on your emergency flashers and listening for the click. once you find the unit that is clicking, you have found the flasher unit
the hazard light flasher relay is bad

Under the drivers side kick panel.
