The left turn signals do not work at all. They all come on when I hit the hazard button so the bulbs are good. I replaced all of my lights but I still get nothing on the drivers side. Has anyone ever had this problem?

    I would look at a wiring diagram and confirm continuity or lack of continuity across the turn signal switch. There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online
