Hello,
The turn signals are actuated by front SAM module. It is fixed to the fuse and relay plate in the driver-side fusebox.
It can be checked with Star Diagnosis computer, which some of the independent MB shops have besides the dealers. Star can show if the SAM sees the comands for turn signal activation from combination switch and hazard switch. Star can also activate turn signals in SAM directly. So it will be quite easy to determine the cause.
If the SAM is replaced, it must be coded to the vehicle with Star as well.

Disconnecting the battery for 30 minutes can also reset the system.
Best regards,
Stan
