My name is ***** ***** I will assist you.

First, I would check the fuses before the switch. Most likely you have a fuse blown. Check them in the cab wit ha test light touching each pin. If one doesn't light the light, then you know that fuse is bad.

If all the fuses test good, let me know if you are comfortable taking the dash apart to test the light switch with a digital multimeter.

See no bad fues checked with test lite which fuse is it that runs this
Expert:  Jeremy replied 11 months ago.

Check fuses 17, 18, and 38.

Turn signal relay is on the right, behind the brake controller, behind the dash. You will find 2 relays there. One is the flasher, the other is the battery drain prevention/accessory delay relay. You'll want the one on the left, towards the driver side. That is the flasher relay.

Is this in cab or under hood ?
Expert:  Jeremy replied 11 months ago.

In the cab.

Expert:  Jeremy replied 11 months ago.

ignore the turn signal. That was supposed to post to another question. Not sure why it ended up here.

Expert:  Jeremy replied 11 months ago.

if those fuses are good, then move to the switch.

It won;t be a ground because all the lights have their own grounds. All the lights though, they work off the fuse, then the switch for power. So if the fuses are good, then most likely the switch is the culprit.
