Battery terminals like bad or corroded. Replace, and you should be fine.

You could use a test light or a bare piece of wire to act as a temp ground to find out. If it is a bad ground in the socket, the socket would need to be replaced.

The right front turn signal does not work. The bulb appears to be good. The turning indicator blinks on and off. Even checked all fuses. What should I try next on a 1990 cadillac sedan de ville?

Rear signal works, just not the front one? This thing should have clear "turning lights" on both front fenders that come on when the headlights are on and the corresponding turn signal is activated. Do they come on? If so, your most common issue is probably a bad bulb socket or wiring. Easily obtained and replaced at a local auto parts store. If the turning light doesn't come on (and the bulb is good) then probably the multi-function switch in the steering column is the problem. Fairly easily obtained but more difficult to replace.

Check the ground from motor to frame and ground wire from battery to body. These sometimes become corroded and will give intermittent problems.
