Question 82 Chevy C10 Left side turn signal not working, HELP

Hi all, I have a 1982 chevy c10. I woke up this morning with a surprise, my right turn signal isn't working. I switched the bulbs out. The interior directional arrow is solid green when I flip it to the right and normal intermittent to the left. When I put the hazards on everything works just fine. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Details are important. Is it the front,rear. or both?
Do the parking and marker lights work?
If it's just the right rear then the brake light circuit may be bad in the turn signal switch.

If they work on the hazards then the grounds are good and you can discount that. also the power to the lights is good and that leaves the turn signal switch.

Hey again, thanks for the response. The issue is in the front and rear of the right side. The parking and marker lights work, and the hazards work fine.

If you want to bypass the turn signal switch to test if the right turns work then locate the column connector and unplug it. The half that goes to the firewall and to the signal lights has a purple wire and a dark green and a dark blue wire in it. The purple wire is from the turn signal flasher and is hot with the key on.If you run a jumper between the purple wire and the dark blue and the dark green wires and turn the key on, The right side should flash.
