I noticed I had a bulb out so I installed a new one. Turned on the parking lights and the bulb I installed
(1157) glows brighter. Tried the turn signals and there is a very minor dimming of the bulb with the parking lights on but no flash. The rear works fine but the front not so much. Ok, short, bad ground...?

wondering if you got the bulb is backwards? I know there are offset install pins on the bulb base, but I have seen (and done it myself) many bulbs put in the wrong way

Ok, bulb would only go in one way so I took the TS housing out all together. Checked all of the connections and re-installed it and it works fine now. I am thinking it was a combination of a dirty connecter and a corroded mounting point....Just another thing checked off the list! Thanks for the input!
