E30 Signal Lights Not Working

As the title suggests my signal lights are not turning on. The last few months this problem was rare, but now they hardly ever work. I don't think it's a switch issue as neither signal lights work when pressing the panic lights as well.

Could anyone help me diagnose this problem? Is it a loose ground? How could I go about fixing this problem?

It's pretty embarrasing having to use the old hand signals when turning lol

My car is a 1987 BMW 325es

That's what I figured. Would you know any good places that might sell them in Van?

Take it to Racing Greed, they helped me find out why my signals weren't working and it took them like 30 mins, totally worth it.

You should be able to find it easily at lordco or canadian tire and should be pretty cheap unless it's some special proprietary german part.
