turn signal trouble please read

i recently bought my 3rd powerstroke diesel it is a 1997 f350 4x4 got it running in a couple hours replaced ipr and fired right up ran it for a few hundred miles and today decided it was time to give it some more tlc left turn signal was working in front but not at the rear. bulb was good ,but replaced anyway .followed wireing back to where it goes up into engine compartment no juice.... checked fuses interior and under the hood still nothing . i know some about electric but this kicked my rear for 8 hours any connections under the hood or dash you all know of i can check ? any help would be
appreciated......... i do love these trucks sold the last one when diesel hit 4 bucks but i missed the power and gas at 3.80 with no power to pull just was not the answer so i found this regular cab long bed for 1800.00 303,000 miles seems to run great so far thinking of switching to synthetic oil( all of it ) also but first i gotta be able to turn left thank ya

Do you have a meter or test light to see if the plug in back is actually getting power? Any corrosion in the socket itself?

Just some thoughts.

Just another thought...

Does the brake light work?
Has it been like this since you got it or is it something new?

Have you looked for a Chilton or Haynes manual that may have a wiring diagram in it to make is easier to follow the wires?

Mine just went through this problem and sure enough it was a bad relay that finally quit and I lost both left and right turn signals last weekend. On the inside fuse panel ON THE BACK SIDE of it their is a circular relay that plugs into the top of the fuse panel. I swapped it out with one that was on the front of the fuse panel (thats for the hazard lights) to test the relay before I bought a new one and that was my problem. Its like a 556 relay or 552 or 522 you get the idea.

Not sure that is your problem but a new $5 relay fixed mine.

04 F350 With all the mods.
