Default Right front turn signal not working

Right front turn signal/parking light quit working. New bulb did not help. I used a voltmeter to determine 12 volts are present at the two pins for parking lights and turn signal however there is no ground present on pin three. I checked the left/drivers side and there is a good ground present on pin three and of course this side functions as it should. Any suggestions? Should I just try to run a new ground wire to the connector? By the way this is 2006 PT.

Chances are its the TIPM. You can try unhooking the battery for 15-20 minutes and see if it resets. If not you will have to take it to the dealer and see if resetting or updating fixes it. The TIPM monitors the entire electrical system using the Canbus system which thy started using in 2006. If it detects an issue it shuts down that circuit.

The problem is it won't reset after the issue is resolved. They had issues with it on the 2006's. Be forewarned that if they say it needs to be replaced it is very expensive. You can do a search for TIPM for more info.

I consulted NASCAR.
They said....."turn left"!

turn on the turn signal and then when you install the bulb, wiggle it in it's connector (in your hand, not installed). my rear bulb was not working and the bulb socket had a shady/intermittent connection. it would work when i tweaked the bulb and then quit when i'd let go. i bent the brass out in the bulb socket so it connects better and it's been fine ever since. careful though, the brass is brittle.

free and easy to try.
