Thank you for your reply. I cleaned bulb socket with the sandpaper. I do not have the test bulb kit but I checked the bulb socket where bulb fits-in at the front with my Multimeter (while Car engine is ON) and it is reading approximately 12.5v. But when I put my new bulb in, it is not working. I checked the same bulb on the other side and it is working fine so I don’t find any problem with the bulb. Can you please suggest anything further that I can do myself. Thank you.

Re: Right Indicator light (Amber) is not working
Try installing a different bulb in that socket. Did you check voltage at the inner prongs where the bulb goes in or was it checked at the wiring. Check the condition of the socket that the bulb goes into. You may have to cut off the socket and replace it with a good one.

Replace flasher, replace blown fuses.
remove bulb and put another new one in, test.
remove bulb check socket for corrosion - wipe with dielectric grease if corroded. reinsert bulb test.
very carefully check all wires connected to back of socket -
look for break or splits --R&R.
Check the signal feed wire with a probe from the back of the bulb socket - go back along wire towards signal light relay. R&R
You can find diagram on the web if you need one.
88 thru 1991 tail lights leaked like crazy on Camry, check the socket to be sure its not corroded , if so, disconnect the battery and clean them with a small wire brush, or roll up a piece of sandpaper and use that, be careful not to hit the bulb connections at the bottom of the socket ,, what you have is a grounding problem and this should fix the problem cheap and fast... make sure you have the right bulbs, I had a guy try and use a 1156 bulb rather than a 1157, make sure the bulb has 2 connections at the bottom not just one, if it has just one this is a backup light bulb
as far *** ur tail lites they r known 2 rust inside take lites out 2 screws and they slide out take bulbs out and clean with sandpaper bulb and sockets get a cheap test lite about 5 to 10 dollars put lites on ground out the test lite and test 4 power in wires
Everything works, more or less, so you know that the switches and fuses are good. That means that you've got either bulb problems or power/ground problems. First, try swapping the bulbs around to see if the "bad" lights will work with the known "good" bulbs in them. If so, you just need to replace some bulbs. If not, check the sockets inside and out for corrosion, clean them (wire brush, steel wool, sandpaper, etc.) if necessary, and use a voltmeter or automotive tester to make sure that you have power and ground to each socket. The fast flash on the turn signal is just an indicator that a bulb is out.
I would take the lense cover off the back and the turn signal cover in the front and get a 12 volt tester to see if there is power remove the bulb and test the socket itself and there is no power stick the tester into the wire to see if you have power if you have power at the wire and not in the socket then you have a bad socket also check to see if one of the bulbs is blown
Do you own a test light? Check for power at wires behind socket? Clean socket good , check contact spots for bulb & clean any rusty side of the socket with emery cloth, or sandpaper, for good contact also.
