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.

In that case, start tracking back. The turn signal switch pulls the brake light out of circuit when the signal is operating. If the switch fails, the one or both stoplights can stop working.

Left turn signal comes on but will not blink. All blink when emergency flashers are on. Right turn signal operates properly 1987 Ford F-150 Pickup?

The reason is because you have two flashers. One works with the hazard light circuit and the other works with the turning sigal circuit. Replace the flasher and if that does not work you should check for a steering column problem or a switch problem. Good Luck
