    Either the indicator stalk is broken or a relay is then!

    Do you have a multimeter?.

    Test to see if you are getting power into that stalk?. If not then you will need to then test the power at the fuse box.

    Have a quick check and see what else is no longer working.

    I'm no expert but I recently bought a clk and one of the rear reverse lights was not working. Started with the bulb, then checked the power at the socket, then the fuse box and eventually got it down to a broken wire within the grommet of the boot.

    If you have a multimeter you can start at the stalk and ten the fuse box and you will eventually find your issue. It does sound like a stalk issue rather than a relay though, so my guess is that you have either lost power to the stalk or the earth has come loose.

    If it were the stalk then the hazard lights would still work at the switch along with the wipers.

    My guess is the relay is at fault.
