Default parking lights and turn signal

My left parking light and turn signal began giving me trouble. When my
parking lights or headlights were turned on, the left turn signal would
illuminate steadly (no flash). When I would try to make a left turn and
switch on the turn signal nothing happened. The emergency flashers
worked normally.
The turn signal indicator on the dash would illuminate at half
brightness when the parking or headlights were turned on. The rear turn
signal would also be on.
The left parking light would not illuminate when the parking lights or
headlights were switched on.

I read a bunch of stuff on google and replaced the flasher. No joy. Then
I replaced the bulb 1157A. This solved the problem for now. I tested the
bulb I pulled out. It tested fine with an ohmmeter. I then used a 12
volt power supply to apply power to this old bulb on both filaments.
They both worked.

I do not believe the bulb was the problem. I think I moved a cable assy
when changing the bulb and there was a bad connection to the ground wire
for this bulb. The socket looked absolutely pristine. I am expecting
this problem to recur. I have in mind to find the ground wire in the
cable going to this light. I will cut it and splice in a separate ground
wire to the chassis.

What does anyone think about all this??? Am I on the right track. I
looked at the print in my manual and realized that a missing ground
would back feed power to the panel lamp and the rear turn signal lamp.
Just my thoughts.
