Expert:  Dan replied 4 months ago.

Check the hazard and turn module, Start at the bulb socket. Use a test light. Then move back to the module.

i checked one of the wires I'm pritty positive it was the black and yellow wire with the test light and it was flashing the bulb on the tester off and on when i had the blinker switch on
Expert:  Dan replied 4 months ago.

Check the grounds as well.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
i checked the ground in the bed of it on each side took them off and scratched behind each of the bolts and washers so it got a better ground then used my test light negative on them and it is getting good ground through them

Expert:  Dan replied 4 months ago.

Use the wiring diagram to check the wiring. Start at the bulbs connectors and work your way back to the fuse.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.

Expert:  Dan replied 4 months ago.

It could be if you have flashing going in and nothing coming out it has to be the module.
