Probe the wiring going into the socket. The sockets are very prone to failure on these vans, I usually check the wiring going into the socket and find that there is power at the wiring, but it's not following through into the socket itself. I have replaced a lot of sockets in Express vans for these symptoms.

I have used a meter to probe the socket input. No current. I also traced the line to just above the seatbelt & no damage in the cargo area. Still nothing.

Stop light on the left side is also inop, correct?

You say fuse is good. I need to verify: do you have power across both sides of the LR STOP/TURN fuse? Use a test light, see that there is actually power present at both sides of the fuse with the turn signal ON.
