Default Right Blinker won't blink even with new bulb.

So I am driving and I go to switch on my right blinker and the green arrow on the dash stays solid, so logically the bulb must be out. I throw on the emergency flasher to check if its the front or also the back bulb and its just the front, I also notice my front right side fender marker bulb is out. So I go and change them both. Put on some of that autozone bulb grease on it and stick it in. Here is the funny part. It won't blink, but the bulb works, when i hit the unlock on my remote it blinks and when I turn on the flip lights, it goes on but stays on and does not blink. But when the flip light are down it stays off as if it needs to be changed. So the bulb works but its not blinking.

On a side note the side marker light is working fine

Could be the DRL module too. I remember packing the socket with with grease, trying different bulbs, even replacing the socket, but once I tested the module I found that it was the problem. Wait. Does your T/A have one?

There are two filaments in the bulb. So, you probably have one "working" and the other not.

- What happens when your DRLs are on? (Headlights off) - This is filament #1 for the DRLs and turn signal
- What happens when your headlights are on? - This is filament #2 for the parking lights
- When your turn signals are on, what does the rear light do?
- When your hazzards are on, what does the rear light do?

Wrong bulb, bad socket or bad flasher relay.

DRL module is always last.

- When my headlights are on both blinkers are on solid but if I turn on the right blinker it just stays solid. left works fine

- My rear right light stays solid when I turn my right blinker on

- when I turn on my hazards my rear light flashes and my front right blinker does nothing

The DRL filament, your turn signal filament, and the hazard filament are the same. Since your DRL is out, your flasher is probably fine. The right side rear probably doesn't flash because the front bulb is "out."

If the filament isn't lighting, its probably the bulb, socket, or DRL module. (In that order.) To be 100% sure its not the bulb, I'd suggest switching the left and right bulbs. If you still have the problem, you should check the socket with a circuit tester. The sockets tend to get fried from the heat of the bulbs - so it may be time to change yours.

There is no relay but there is a flasher. If the flasher was bad, the DRLs would work.

I had a blinker problem for a while. My front right blinker wouldnt come on or blink when i was driving but when the parking brake was up, the light was dim orange. I ended up saying **** it, and replaced both sockets. Good as new... cost me around 60 dollars for both new sockets and a soldering gun. Soldering was easy... and the fix is good.
