Default right hand flicker

Well I have a 1997 SSEI and my right flicker, well doesn't flick. It just stays "on". My Left flicker works fine, so I assume there is a relay for them separately. Can someone please tell me how to fix this?

Thanks in advance

I would check to make sure all of you bulbs are working, if there isn't enough load on the flashing module then it will will flash rapidly, if there is a short then it will say constant.

Bulbs are working. I have checked many times as the thing beeps me and tells me that the bulb is dead, yet it is still working.

Should I replace the bulb and go from there or is there something else I should look for?

Do you know the part number? I am not sure why it would work for the left flicker, but not the right one

do all lights work properly? even with multiple usage (ie. brake and signal) . you are right if one side works and not the other than problem exists between switch and lights.
