Signal problem!

Hey guys last night my signals seemed to have died. Both my left and right turn signals as well as hazards don't come on. On the occasion I can hear the red and left signal turn on but it's only the clicking from the dash... And then it shuts off not to long after( maybe after like a few clicks)?. I havnt been able to see how ever if when it's clicking the lights are actually linking to due the short time.

Any suggestions??

I'm guessing your relay is shot.

Sorry I should have stated. This is a 325e 1986. I've looke at diagrams for the relays but can't find out which relay its for. Could anyone point me to it?

Fuses are also all good.

Could bad bulbs/ blown bulbs also cause this?
