    The bulb has a separate filament for the marker light than for the turn signal. It is entirely possible the marker light filament is burnt out and the turn signal filament is still working.

    Try a need bulb. If that doesn't work, you have a spare bulb to use later.

    The next thing to check is the connection of the socket to the wiring.
