It's the front passenger bulb that does not work for the turn signal. I took it out, and replaced and it still doesn't work

well yea

I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
the only thing that can cause this is a wiring connection/issue to the bulb (including a bad socket) or an internal failure in the control computer that runs the vehicle lighting (called the frm)
if the bulb was out for a very long time, then the control computer (frm) may need to be replaced or reset due to an internal shut down of the signal to that bulb as a protection mechanism.
my guess would be the frm is bad
Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle
