Hello All. I currently only have a right turn signal and when I turn my hazard lights on it goes solid, the left one doesn't do anything. I've tried changing the actual switch and checking wires and have had no luck. The truck was originally an automatic that was recently converted to a manual. That included the entire steering column. Any suggestion on what to check next? Seems odd that I have one side on not the other. Thank you in advance.

My credo
Drive it, Break it, Fix it, REPEAT !
Under the bed of the truck, the wiring harness runs alongside the D/S frame rail. Rangers have separate brake/turn signal wiring. If you have a receiver installed on your truck, then there is a electrical wiring block that was tapped into the factory wiring harness next to the spare tire. A lot of taillight problems are caused by the connector that operates a 4 pin trailer plug. I would suggest that you take a look at this area, I've had some issues with it on my truck. Its an easy fix if thats your problem. I'm just offering some "Unsolicited Information" for a question asked. I hope you find an easy solution.
