Default turn signal doesn't work, already replaced bulbs

Answer this one guys...

Both of my blinkers quit working. I replaced one of the back passenger side brake bulbs and the right blinker is working again. However, I replaced the front driver side parking orange bulb, the drivers orange front side marker bulb, and the brake bulbs look to be fine. But my left blinker is still staying solid and not flashing????

Update: the big orange corner light (driver side) I replaced today. when I don't have the light switch turned to off, the passenger side corner light is lit up. but even after replacing the bulb on the driver side it still doesn't light up like the other one. But when the lights are turned on, it works! I'm confused?

Check out this sticky:
http://www.ls1tech.com/forums/showpo...18&postcount=7
That is one of the topics in the "Lighting FAQ", which is in the "Hall of Fame" sticky in the "Appearance & Detailing" section. There is also a link to the "Lighting FAQ" in my sig.

I found this to be not so cheap. This same thing happened to the former owner of my car as well. He used a cheap cheap replacement. Its does nothing but burn bulbs (not to mention it does not seal on the turn signal housing like the stock ones) which allows water to leak in .. probably making it situation worse.

I would recommend using at least a quality OEM replacement. I went and got the AC delco replacements.. too bad it was like 50$ each.

according to this sticky: http://www.ls1tech.com/forums/showpo...18&postcount=7
it's not the flasher, since the right blinker works.

I noticed the front left turn signal doesn't flash when it's supposed to, and the tail-light brightens up but stays solid.

Its the sockets. They are fried. Go to autozone and get the replacements for 5-10 dollars.

We have this problem all the time at our shop, Its most likely the socket on the front turn signal (usually the drivers side) Check for power with a test light to verify

if it's the socket then why would that turn signal bulb/corner bulb light up (but not flash) when the lights are turned on?

The bulbs aren't supposed to flash when you turn on the headlights.

The front turn-signals/DRLs use dual filament bulbs.

With the headlights off, the DRLs use the bright filament.
With the headlights on, the DRLs use the dim filament.

In both situations, the signals use the bright filament.
