Was wondering if there was any one who could help me out. The fuse for my indicators I believe have blown, but their seems to be no indicator fuse in the engine bay or in the dash. I was wondering how I could fix this problem

The indicator lights do not work, the light does not come on in the dash either.

Hazard lights work normally.
