Turn signals not working

After hooking up my tire trailer I found my turn signals didn't work. Checked fuses and replaced flasher. Hazards work. A local shop agreed with me it must be the turn signal switch. They sold me a supposedly good used one. However after installation, still no turn signals. Is there any procedure to troubleshoot the pins on the back? Any other possibiliities? It's a 2000 Boxster. Thanks.

When was the last time you changed your:

Any other odd electrical gremlins of late (hazards are a separate 'circuit' than turn and work independently from ignition switch.)

PS - Find another errrrr a reliable shop who will diagnose the problem and not just have you throw $ at parts recklessly...

It's all the lights. No indicator on the dash. Hazards work as there should. No other electrical gremlins. I talked to a mechanic who felt it was the hazard switch, even though the hazards work. I will explore that option. BTW if you don't have a T30 torx to remove the airbag, a 3/16s straight blade screwdriver will work.
