No front turn signal. Help Please

So the fiances 2013 JKUR has been being a complete pain in the ass lately, from the cooling fan going out, to the TIPM going out as well. Now the big issue is with the front turn signals.

The trouble we are having is that the front turn signals are no working. The bulb lights up just fine for the parking lights, but there is no flash when you activate the turn signals or hazard lights. The indicators on the instrument panel are working fine, and the rear turn signal is working fine. The front ones just are not cooperating.

Ive gone through the fuses and they are all good both visually and with a power tester. Not only that but the way the fuses are one controls the right side of the vehicle and the other does the left sife of the vehicle with has me even more confused. The bulbs are obviously good since the parking lights work just fine. The EVIC on the instrument console says front right and left turn signal not working.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

Are you getting a rapid flash rate?

Seeing the parking lights come on isn't an indicator the bulbs are 100% good.
The bulbs have 2 filaments in them; one for park, and one for directional/flasher.
Also, there is no fuse for the turn signals/flashers. The circuit is electronically protected and driven.

So, check both filaments in each bulb. If they are good, disconnect the battery negative terminal for a few minutes. See if the directional lights work after you reconnect the battery.

If they still malfunction, you need to see if power is getting to the sockets for the directional filaments. Check the ground connections for the sockets, too.

The problem is still occurring.

When you activate the turn signals the front doesn't flash at all and the rear flashes normal for about 10 flashes then goes into rapid flash.

Power is good at the end of the wiring harness, and good when the socket is plugged into the harness

Ive disconnected the battery for several hours and still the same.

Im really scratching my head on this one. I plan on swapping the sockets from my 09 in just to confirm its still not the sockets, but Im grasping at straws on this one.

You checked power in the socket as suggested, but you didn't mention if you checked for a good ground in the socket.
