Default turn signal

ok so a couple days ago i noticed the lamp monitor come on and it said park light and turn signal on it....so i looked at it today and the middle turn signal bulb (driver) was burned out on the front all of the others were fine, so i got a new bulb for it and put it in and it is obnoxiusly brighter than the one next to it (passenger) so i changed that one too, but its still like that so i tried turning on the blinker and it wont flash none of the lights flash on that side(driver) they jus stay solid and my dad was with me when i did this and he worked on old cars back in the day and said that the flasher thing is broken he said it used to be under the dash in old cars....its bright bc its stuck on flash pretty much and when i turn on the flashers, it and the other 2 blubs (side and rear) jus stay on solid so do u know how to fix this bc my dads not sure i have no idea how?

so your saying if you have your hazard lights on or try the turn signal the light just get bright eith no flash? It must be thr flasher gone out. Check the fuses under the dash on the driver side and look at the cover for the flasher fuse. Change the fuse and see what happens. It should work after that

Are you saying that the bulb is bright even when you have the turn signal off?

Check to make sure you installed the correct bulb on the driver'* side and that the bulb is put into the base correctly. The bulb should be a No. 2057NA.

Try switching the two bulbs with each other and see if the other side is bright all of the time. Carefully put the bulbs into the base. They only go in one way.
