1, You did change the flasher can under the dash and not the one in the fuse block. The one in the fuse block is for the emergency flashers.
2, Do the emergency flashers work? All the bulbs light up?
3, When the one side isn't working, what's it doing? Some bulbs light up? All bulbs light up? No bulbs light up?

I would check my grounds first.Then check to see if getting voltage.If not getting signal on font and back of car.Then I would unplug the steering column harness make sure is clean and not oxidized.But its probably in the housing.Do you get the click when shifting.Pull steering wheel,horn contact.Look and see if dirty inside clean could be just the contact on that side is oxidized just have to scrap on it.

That would be if you have the optional horn button activated turn signals. Blinks when you push the button on that side of the steering wheel. :D Actually I think he meant to remove horn contacts to gain access to the turn signal switch, maybe.

Sorry was trying to say to pull the horn contact assembly to gain access to the switch assembly to clean the contacts or see if broken.

Well, we need to make it easier not harder. We get a little carried away with ourselves sometimes. Luckily, John usually keeps us on track. ;)

We in this forum agree with you, the electrical system is vitally important and can be VERY confusing when things aren't working right.

G-Rod, where do you stand with your problem at this point?

Thank you for all the info. It helped me find the problem,It was a dirtet connector next to the battery that goes to the right turn signal.
