Side blinkers not working.. Suggestions?

i just noticed that my side marker lights aren't blinking... I changed the bulbs and checked the fuses but all was good.. And for some reason both lights aren't working. They don't work at all with the alarm, turn signals, or hazards... any suggestions as to what might be causing this... thank.s

Check the blinker fluid level.

the Boxster has no side blinkers, these are side markers meaning they go on with the headlights.
However: there is a relatively simple hack to make them work as Blinkers

One of the 1st hacks I did was the euro-sidemarker hack and I love it. Very distinctive and really easy.
