Turn signal problems

Need your help please. I have turn signal problems.
With headlights and running lights off, the back turn signals work great. Front turn signals do not light up. With running lights or headlights on, the back turn signals don't work (they stay lit like running lights) and the front turn signals don't blink but are on for running lights. Other lights such as head lights, brake lights and back up lights work great. I have traced wires and all looks good. All bulbs are fine.
Any ideas? I'd really appreciate a little help.
Thanks

Recheck your grounds. I had a similar problem and went back through the grounds and finally found where the issue was.

Particularly how the front turnsignal housing is attached to the grll. They use a special screw here that makes contact with the housing and the grill for ground without crushing the plastic lens.

ok, screws on front lights tight and well grounded.
Wiring back traced as far as possible all looks good and connected to ground wire from box on wiring harness.
Any other ideas?

Which 'box' are we talking about?
If your talking about the firewall connection, there is no dedicated ground in there...
