Best Answer

Because the turn signals are a completely separate curcuit from the emergency 4 way lights. The turn signal wiring has a short that causes the fuse to blow out. In order to find that short, you need a technician that specialises in electrical wiring repairs, because you could spend days trying to find it and fail. It will cost some money but less than the value of the truck, or a traffic ticket for "no signals."

Not sure what vehicle you have but with most vehicles the signals and emergency flashers are separate circuits. Each have there own fuse and flasher. Check fuses, bulbs and flashers. If all checks okay it may be the signal switch at fault.
