Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, proposed preliminary try (if have not been done) would be to check the common/ground lines of both left and right. In most versions, these would be the black wires from the front signal lights.
