    Default Driver's side turn signal not working.

    Hi,

    I am new here because this is the first time my truck (2005 Silverado 1500) has failed me. I searched the forum but didn't find my specific problem. The left turn signal has stopped working via the turn signal lever or the hazzard switch. I have swapped fuses and bulbs from left to right (only turn signal bulbs) and the left side still fails. Am I looking at the steering column lever or hazzard switch problem or something else? I am off to buy a repair manual.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Jeff

    Have you checked the wiring and ground?

    Welcome to the site! Like Ronny said, I'd make sure the "ground" is good to start with. Good luck!

    If your grounds are fine it could be the flasher or the relay.
