Have you used a multimeter to check if you're getting voltage to the bulb socket when the blinker is engaged? Also, your wiring may look good and be intact, however the contacts in the light housing may be shot. With the blinker on, try slightly wiggling the bulb in the socket and see if the bulb lights up. Wear latex/rubber gloves while doing this.

I just had to replace my wiring harness on the rear light housing on my 2005 Spectra. I tried everything- new bulb, bulb grease, etc. Turns out I needed a new socket.

Do some searches on BCM and ETACS in this forum..
They have been failing more and more often.
The turn signal lamps are controlled by the BCM/Etacs
