[DML] Re: Turn Signal Malfunction - not sensing front bulb

After hours of frustration I usually remember to check the basics. 
Personally, I am wiring challenged and have found that I should start 
looking in the last place first --- the ground. Whether the ground is a 
wire, screw or bolt it may be corroded. Next  I check for any other 
connectors being corroded or broken. It is easier if you have a simple 
tester to check continuity.
Good luck,
Lee Edmonson
