Default New here need help

Hello!! New here. I have a 98.5 Dodge Ram 2500 I recently had my blinkers go out. Hazards don't work either. When I use press the brake and turn signal on the bulb is dim but does not flash. I've replaced the flasher, headlight switch, and multifunction switch. I've found a ground behind the inside fuse panel didn't look bad but cleaned and put back. Found another by the front drivers side headlight. Did the same. Still don't have blinkers or flashers. Am I missing something??? HELP!! Please.

Have you replaced the bulbs, the gen 2s use a dual filiment 1157 or 3157 bulb and it is possible for the light to still light up but wont flash as it uses the other filament for flashing. Other than that the flashers run through the main timer module and if it is going bad then no mater what other parts are replaced still wont function.

Flasher module is in the fuse block on the side of the dash. On yours, one module deals with both the turn signals, and the hazard flashers.
