    If your sure all your bulbs are good, sounds like the flasher is out. Its a small electric solenoid thing under the dash. There are two: one for hazards, and one for the blinkers. Change the one for the blinker and you should be good. Its like a $5 piece from autozone.

    the flasher soleniod flashes for the left blinker so the guy at autozone told me that if the flasher was out both sides wouldnt flash..... i noticed there are two lights in each of the front blinkers, wat is wierd is that the left front blinker has a bulb burned out but that side flashes fine, the right side is the side with the problem and both its lights appear to b good, so idk?????

    hmmm not sure, I did have one on a firebird where the right would work just fine but the left would work sometimes, but not others....would go solid but not blink....replaced the flasher and it fixed the problem. Like I said its worth $5 to try once you've replaced all the bulbs

    ok so i replaced the flasher soleniod and now ALL the outside lights on the car flash(except headlights) when i turn on the right blinker,not just the ones on the right, the lights on the rightside are a little brighter than the rest but they all blink the right, left and its wierd cuz even the sidemarkers blink. wtf!!!!!!!!!!! i really need help guys i gotta pass a brake and light inspection and as of now im f..ked!!! the only thing that looks unusual is there are a white and black wire hanging down from the right front blinker housing, you can see it when looking from underneath after you take off the access panel but i think they've been hanging since i got the car and the blinkers worked fine then....... HELP PLEASE

    oh yeah i forgot that when i turn on the headlights the left blinker works fine like it always does but on the right the blinker light turns on and stays on like it would if a light was out.....?????

    Could be a short in one of the wires, bad bulbs, bad flashers, or it could even be the bcm (body controll modual)

    you might want to take it some where to have it done in our cars as in most I believe it is behind the dash as for seeing if it where bad would consist of checking all the body functions of the car windows, lights, whipers, all that stuff if more than just the signal is bad then you have your culprit but if it is just the signal you should check the switch
