986 blinkers not working -> hazards do work

Goodday to you all.
My Porsche Boxster (1997) blinkers stopped working recently.
I checked all the fuses and checked the relay.

My hazards work fine, but my blinkers just don't.

My Porsche is imported from Japan.

I'm lost, since the relay works and the hazards work.

My blinker stalk is not stuck or such, it functions fine, just no blinkers light up.

Could you please tell me which fuse it exactly is? ( I thought the same one that works together with the automatic roof ), and what else I could try to fix it.

thanks in advance.

kind regards,

Dave

Have you re-installed the headlights recently?
I broke the harness clip once b/c I didn’t insert the headlight assembly straight in and started seeing odd behavior like this. The harness wasn’t fully seating into the headlight. $7 replacement clip fixed it.
