Default 1985 left dash turn signal not blinking

on 1985 my left dash turn signal (which was working) now stopped blinking...it stays on and does not blink. the right one is fine. would this be the flasher and where is the drivers side flasher located? is it easy to get to and replace? i am NOT a mechanic but would like to try without ageing myself. thanks

There is only one flasher. You probably have a burned out turn signal
bulb outside the car. Put your left turn signal on and see if one does not blink in the front or back of your car. You could also turn your 4 way flashers on and check the outside bulbs. Check if bulbs are burned out or bad connection. Hope this helps.

Corrosion in a bulb socket could also be a culprit. Keep us posted on your results.
