Turn signals not working after storm

Hi all,
My turn signals were working fine until this morning (there was a big storm last night and my bike was outside). I'm guessing water got in somewhere, but I'm not sure where to check. The running lights work fine. When I signal left, the left forward signal goes dark, and the rear signal doesn't come on. When I signal right, the right forward signal goes dark and the rear signal doesn't come on. When signaling, the turn signal lights on the dash come on for just a second before going dark. I have flush mounted signals (proton if I remember right) and an integrated tail light (can't remember the brand). The bike is a 2009. I looked around on the message board and it seems like I need a new flasher relay maybe? Can somebody confirm whether this is what I need?

Hoping it's just that and not something more serious. Thanks!

Check your fuses first, but it sounds like you need a relay.

Check out Acumen: http://www.acumen-electronics.co.uk/...ay_4_LED_66005

Or Tripage: Tripage flasher Relay

Looks like the one you posted also fits.

Got a PM about the solution so I figured I'd post here for all to see. I checked the fuses (they were fine) and installed a new relay (didn't help). I ended up having the shop look at it while they were doing some other stuff on the bike.
They took apart the housing over the signal switch and said that it was all types of gunked up. They cleaned it out and everything started working again.

I had a similar problem. It ended up being a bad flasher relay. See post: Turn signal problems
