need help getting turn signals to work

Hey guys, any help appreciated. Car is a 73 Torino. Hazzards work just fine and all bulbs are good. Flasher and fuse are good too. But, I can't get the turn signals to work. I've tried three different spare turn signal cam switches too so I know I don't have a bad unit. What's the deal?

have you checked the connections under the dash?
you might have a loose wire (happened to me for my horn, feel so stupid..)

Sometimes when the turn signal switch is replaced people will just cut the wires at the connectors and patch them back together. This is a very common place for a wire to come loose. If you did re-pin the connector make sure your color codes match up.

Also, when you say the flashers are working are you going around and verifying that the lights are all blinking? I have had a problem where the flasher would wink as if it were working but a light socket was worn out and the bulb wouldn't light up. I had to replace the light socket.
