Turn Signal not working on a 528e 1986

I just bought a 1986 528e BMW and the fuse box was kind of messed up, I got most of it fixed but I cannot get the turn signals to work and I am not entirely sure which things control them.

My hazard lights do work which hopefully means the wiring is fine so I think its just a fuse or relay problem, any help would be fantastic.

Thanks!

Probably the hazard light switch. Make sure it is completely disengaged.

Thanks for the reply but I messed with the hazard button and I am pretty sure it was disengaged and the turn signals still don't work.

Any replies are appreciated!

Check the continuity of the turn signal switch. You will need to remove the steering wheel to access 2 screws for the covers and there are 2 more in the lower cover. You'll need a 22-mm socket and then turn the key to release the steering wheel. The turn signal relay is also under the column so it would be a good time to replace it and take it out of the equation.
