Question about 1998 Buick Century
This one has me wondering. The left blinkers all work fine, in dash and outside.. Problems, Right turn signal on dash does not light up at all, front right blinker does not work. back right blinker works but its blinking fast. Hazards also dont work on the front right blinker but all others work fine. also when the hazards are on the dash light still only works on the left and the flasher sounds normal. I can hear the flasher going normal on left sinal, fast on right. This is what I've done, replaced flasher, replaced all bulbs with correct new ones. replaced entire front right light assembly and cleaned ground (I think it was the right ground was located near top of radiator) What else could this be-Please help.
The signal wire going to the right front has a splice for the dash indicator, a wire branching off from the turn wire and going to the dash. It sounds like that right signal wire is broken or lost a connection before it splices off to the dash, so the problem sounds like it is under the dash, either coming out of the turn signal switch to the flasher or from the flasher to that splice. You may need a multi-meter to check voltages on that wire at various places under the dash. Ascertain which color wire you need to concentrate on. Check for voltage on it with key on and right blinker on-voltmeter will spike to battery voltage, then fall to zero as the flasher breaks voltage continuously, if checked after the flasher. If checked when leaving the turn switch, it should be a continuous signal on that wire. Think you better find a wiring diagram to find the right wire to check. Good luck.

I know it sounds strange but I would first check the bulbs and then check the hazard switch. The hazard switch is also the flasher unit. It fails and there are alot of stsange sinarios.
I hope this helps,
