New turn signal switch, no left signal?

i just finished replacing my turn signal switch on my 95. my old on i accidentally ripped the hazard knob off with my keys and it didnt work at all, but it worked fine before that. my problem is i get a right turn signal , but not a left. the arrow just stays lit, no blinking or clicking and the left rear taillight lights up but doesnt flash. the front left wont even turn on. could it be the big fuse undwe the dash? any suggestions?

Thanks

If the rear turn light comes on (but does not flash) and the front doesn't come on at all, start by replacing the front bulb, or checking the front socket for power & ground.

If the rear is coming on, the circuit is being made "hot", so the problem is probably in the left front bulb/socket area.

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.

i had this same exact problem. Right signal worked fine, no left. I changed the flasher in the fusebox and nothing changed. One day, the left one worked again for no apparent reason. The next day, I have no signals at all. Not even the little arrows in the dash. I'm wondering if this is just some progressive problem with that switch in the column. Those spring-loaded things go bad all the time I've heard. My steering wheel assembly is in pieces in the garage right now because i can't get the damn thing off to replace the turn signal/hazard switch. And im pissed.
