are you talking about the actual lamp socket? If so, yes. There is nothing wrong with it......

Okay crankbait, here is what you need to do. If you don't have a Powerprobe, you need to establish which circuit has gone bad. Take a jumper wire and go from the battery negative post and jump it to the black wire coming out of the socket with the turn signals on. If the circuit begins to work. There is a break in the wiring between the socket and the ground point which should be the rear of the frame rail. If that does not work, we need to go to the positive side of the circuit. Take your jumper wire and put one side on the positive post of the battery, and take the other end and touch the yellow (left turn) or green (right turn) wire coming out of the socket. The lamp should come on steady (TS switch off). If it does, we need to work our way back from there. I'll check back tomorrow night. You may need to backprobe the connector to amke the connection. Do not pierce any wiring. Jump these wires only momentarily. Be careful not to touch any grounding points (metal) during testing of the positive side.
crankbait-Make sure you heed the warning above. I am not responsible or liable for anything you do. I am just saying that with the equipment you have, this is what I would do if I had to diagnose this problem with limited resources.
