Front Hazard/Turn signals do not work

I have a 1991 Toyota Corolla All-Trac wagen. The front amber lights--the turn and hazard signals--do not light at all. The rear ones work well, and the headlights are functioning as they should. The dash indicators are working. Just the front hazard/turn signals will not light.

Have you replaced the bulbs? Since the rears are working, possible problems could be:
1. Broken wiring - doubtful
2. Corroded contacts in the bulb sockets - possible
3. Burned out bulbs - most likely

turn/hazard signals

I removed the bulbs on the driver's side, planning to carry them up to the store to replace, but they really look perfectly good. Anyway, as there are two bulbs on each side for turn/hazard signals, why would all four burn out simultaneously?
Obviously, I know very little about repairing anything on a car, but I have searched online for answers. As a result, I am wondering if it could be the relay switch or the ground or the circuit breaker. If so, I really would appreciate someone telling me how to get at them.
Thanks, Olivia

Looks can be deceiving. A broken filament can appear intact. The front turn signal bulb is a number 1156. You may also see a parking light bulb which I believe is a number 194.
Don't jump to difficult fixes until you have verified the simple ones.
