Blinker Problem

My left blinker has not been working for a while, and i have to go through inspection now, and of course it won't pass with this problem, i was wondering if anyone could help, or has had the same problem.
I replaced the relay, and it wasnt that, and replaced the whole switch altogether, and that didnt fix the problem, just wondering if it the ground would be seperate from the right blinker ground, or if anyone knows the colours of the ground or power wire, any help or suggestions would be appreciated, i need this fixd by friday night.

peace

I had/have the same problem with my right blinker, and as far as I can tell its a loose ground somewhere, If I take the wires from the turn signal and follow them back a little ways, and move them around, it will start to work again....and it will continue to work for several weeks to several months, then stop again...I havn't fixed it perminatly, because I figure its just as easy to shake the wires every few months....so if you have the same problem...try that, it might at least work long enough for you to get through inspection.
