If it isn't bulb or socket, that leaves wiring - look for a break in the wire.

Will this help any owners
Signal light not working correctly
Back to the last cool Florida weather I remover the front wheel, passenger side, on my 2006 PT Cruiser to change the signal light bulb.
Yes, this is ridicules however, Chrysler shipped the work down to Mexico, Mexico made American car?
To my horror I found that the wires were (it looked like squirrels ate the wire right at the base of the socket) chewed up.
I super glued and taped the wire ( only way left to hook it up).
I priced the socket assemble at auto parts stores only to find that 2006 was too new for them to carry.
Go to a junk yard!
I priced the assembly at my Chrysler dealer, $188.00!
They also told me to go to a junk yard!
Today, because the signal light started acting funny while the headlights were on and the car computer also started acting funny, I remover the driver side wheel to change out that signal light bulb, I found that the wires to the socket were chew off in about the same place as the passenger side.
After a closer look, this time with my glasses on, I found out that this was not a squirrel hungry job but poor engineering on the part of Chrysler and their Mexico company!
The rubber cover, to protect the lights and wires from rain, was in fact rubbing on the wiring at the end of the socket and after a time it chewed through the wiring!
$.50 worth of wire connectors, lots of electrical tape and two new light bulbs $6.00 ( all of that work I just replaced both bulb).

It could also be a TIPM issue. But I would check the wiring as suggested above before going down that path.
