Just the right side? Try pulling the fuse for the turn signals and/or the 4-way flashers. Also check the bulbs for the brake/turn signals/running light bulbs. A bulb that has 2-two filaments and has a broken filament that is shorted to the other filament can cause really weird looking problems. Also, try unplugging the turn signal switch at the bottom of the steering column to see if that changes. Good luck.
