Hello, new expert here as per your request. To diagnose this you'll need a test light or volt meter.

1. Start by checking the black wire at the socket for ground. You can either use a test light with the clip on your battery + post or a volt meter set to ohms. The light should light or have less than 1 ohm resistance. Since your marker lamp works the ground is most likely fine.

2. With the right turn signal on check for voltage on the dark green wire at the socket. There should be pulses of light on the test lamp or 12 volts on a voltmeter. If it is present on the wire then the socket is bad.

3. If you do not have 12 volts there lower the steering column cover and check the dark green wire coming out of the turn signal switch. If voltage is present then there is a break in the wire going to the rear. If voltage is not present the turn signal switch is bad and must be replaced. A bad turn signal switch causes this most often. Below is a wiring diagram and info on replacing the switch.
