Angry Turn Signal Not Working

On my 2001 SLK320, my driver's side turn signal does not work. All of the lights work and the emergency flasher works too. The passenger side turn works fine as well, just the driver's side does nothing--no rapid flash, no sound, no nothing!

I've read where this could be a steering column multifunction switch failure and also read that it might be in the signal relay?

Any suggestions on how to begin a diagnostics here since it is a little aggravating not to mention dangerous out here in Vegas with the crazy drivers

Thanks for any suggestions...

Thanks for the reply; however, I've tried and tried to uplad a pic and personalize the information on my profile but everything I've tried to save results in a message that can not be saved! I'm pretty good at this sort of stuff usually, so this is a bit frustrating--any suggestion in that department??


Thanks!

When you say switch do you mean the multifunction switch? Or is there a relay or something you know about?
