Blinker bulb works as a blinker but doesn't work when lights turned on

So when I turn the headlights on only the right amber comes on next to the headlight. Left one is off. However, the left blinker does work. Is this due to a fuse or something? Any help is appreciated.

I'm going to ask the obvious question. Have you checked to see if the bulb is bad? There are two filaments in the bulb - one is for parking lights and the other it for the turn signal. I'm pretty sure the tail lights and the corner lights are on one fuse so if the fuse is bad your tail lights stop working too. Check the parking wire as well - I believe it's brown - as the parking and turn signal power travel over two separate wires.

I didn't know there were seperate filaments in the bulb. I'll take a look at that first. Thank you.

If it's not the bulb, it could be the socket and it wiring.
