Left turn signals stopped working. Replaced all bulbs and flasher still nothing. Flasher clicks but dash left turn signal does not flash. Is it the turn signal combo switch or what else are my options. ANY HELP MUCHLY APPRECIATED!!!!!!! Dave
I had the same problem with my 1994 rodeo. it is the turn signal switch itself that is bad, I was lucky enough to find the whole switch in a salvage yrad, and replace it, it did the trick, there is a little brass flapper that is supposed to make contact that gets corroded and won't make the contact. one might use dielectric pray into the opening of the switch arm first before you take the steering wheel off and disassemble it.

I don't believe it would be a bad ground for just one light. It could be a wire, a socket connector, or the bulb socket itself. See if the wire has power at the socket when signaling left, with key on. If there is power, probably a bad socket or connector. If no power, check for power coming from flasher-the wire going to front left, or driver's side. If you have power from the flasher, but nothing at the socket, the wire has probably broken. Good luck.
It sounds like the flasher relay is stuck closed. It is located under the left side of the dash, to the right side of the steering column. Try replacing that and double check if you recently replaced any bulbs that they have the correct base for the sockets. Sometimes the bulb might look right but the base is slightly different. The correct turn signal bulb for your vehicle is a 2057, and an EL12 or FL12 for the flasher relay.
sounds like you have a bad flasher which is usually located near the steering column under the dash. check for ground on front left bulb. may have to replace light socket if ground is good.please leave comment.
Are you sure the right side bulbs all flash? You say you replaced all the bulbs? Why would you replace bulbs that were working? Did you have this problem before you replaced the bulbs, or after. The hazard flasher is down under the dash, left side, turn the signals on and follow the clicking noise.The hazard flasher and the turn signal flasher should be near each other, and are interchangeable. If it clicks fast, a bulb or a bad socket is usually the cause. These trucks have a lot of problems with the tail light circuit boards.
Have you tried replacing the flasher? You'd think neither side would blink if the flasher was bad but I've seen this happen and it turned out to be the flasher. You could swap the signal flasher with the 4 way flasher to verify that's the problem before going out and buying one. Should be a few bucks at the parts store.
When you select left or right do any of the bulbs come on? If you select left check front and back left side if one of the bulbs did not come on the flasher will not work. Change the bulb that is out. Same with the right. If the fuse for the turn signal is good (check fuse or replace do not use visual, some appear to be good but are not).
The emergency flasher is different from the turn signal flasher. Look at manual for location of turn signal flasher. If you manually lift and lower turn signal control you may hear a clicking under the dash to locate the flasher.
