What do you mean "they don't work" - Lights don't flash? Self cancelling doesn't cancel?

start with the fuse first, then check the bulbs. after that, it really becomes electrical and could be the cancelling unit. a little beyond my experience.

I have a '94 GW and I know that the model years '93-'95 have TWO flasher relays, one for the turn signal system and a wholly separate one for the hazard system. I'd strongly suspect that you have a problem with the TURN SIGNAL relay. But first things first, you know the lights are good cuz they work with the 4way, so check your FUSE, if it's good, check to see that you are getting power to the TURN SIGNAL RELAY. Generally, wiring problems between the switch and the relay, or between the relay and the lights, result in problems with one side or the other, rarely BOTH. However, if there is a problem with the power to the relay, that will affect both sides, every time.
