No Left Front Blinkers? Any ideas?

Here's a new one... I have no left front blinkers. The marker lights work, the bulbs are new, the left rear blinker works, all right blinkers work, and all the wiring is in tact.

Any ideas?

Nah, just changed the blinker fluid and filter last weekend, used premium synthetic stuff too.

Wouldn't that cause both sides to not work? Or the front and back not just the front?

Left and right are different fuses...

Left is fuse 3, 7.5A, Left Stop/Turn Trailer Tow
Right is fuse 7, 7.5A, Right Stop/Turn Trailer Tow
Flasher/Hazard is fuse 21, 15A
Parking Lights is fuse 35, 15A

At least that is how it is on my '99

All the sockets are fine, if they were damaged I shouldn't be getting any light at all. And with mine being a '99 I have two bulbs in the blinker and they are both not blinking.
