I have the same problem like yours... no lights on my driver side marker but blinker speed seems normal right or left. Tried changing bulbs twice but to not avail. Tried to scrape metal connector in the socket.. still the same. Did you solved your problem by changing the socket? Was it hard to separate the black connector from the socket. Tried to change bulb thru the wheel well just removing two bolts and n ot even removing the tire

If you have one side marker light that isnt working, then you more than likely have a short somewhere.

if you had a short, either the bulb would be lit all the time or the circuit fuse would be blown.

You're looking for an open circuit or high resistance. In the case of high resistance, it will all function correctly except for the bulb which will be inoperative. Probably within the socket if you haven't replaced it yet.

Ill clarify what I meant to say and what I actually said. I mean a break in the wire rather than a short. I had an issue like this on my ZX3 where the wires were broke back closer to the larger harness.

lol OK... well I know people call open circuits (breaks) shorts, and shorts as shorts. I saw like four references to it being a short in this thread. It bugs the hell out of me lol.
