Help!I have a 97 Ford Explorer and the problem is my left turn signal will not work with lights on I have checked the few things I can think of (I know very little about vehicles) what could be wrong?

Asked by Sep 13, 2014 at 09:57 PM about the 1997 Ford Explorer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I check the bulb, switched it, even
flipped it to make sure it was in
properly and the fuses are fine. The
right works fine and the left works as
long as I don't turn on my
parking/headlights. I was wondering
if it could be the old trailer harness
thing gone bad.

I would start by looking at the old harness.

As Bmark,said check harness and bulb socket it self,may be burnt out.

Remove the bulb from the socket. Insert the two multimeter pins (one black one red) into the positive and negative slots. Set the meter to twelve volts or lower. Turn on the headlights then engage the turn signal. See if the needle or digital readout cycles from zero volts to twelve. If it does, the problem is with the connection between the bulb and socket. If not, begin checking backward.
