Could you please re-write that in English, using normal proper sentence structure and punctuation. I have no idea what you just said.

No, not really. So I guess I will just have to guess at what you're trying to say.

If you have a trailer light harness, it is probably corroded and rotted out. The parking light pin is making contact with the left stop/tail/turn pin. Or the same thing is happening in one of the taillight or front parking light sockets.

Of course, that's a guess based on what little i can put together from your post.

here's what i gathered:

with the headlight off, the left blinker works as it normally would, blinking on and off when it's supposed to.

with the headlights on, the left blinker doesn't work, it just stays lit.

he tried changing the bulbs from side to side, and that didn't fix it.

Your title says that the problem is on the right side but the body of the post says it's on the left. Which is it?

Year, make, model?

Blinker fluid's low.....



Sorry I couldn't pass that one up. On a serious note though a little clarification on the issue would be nice

If you haven't already, try and find yourself a wiring diagram for your truck. It will help a lot in troubleshooting the problem so you can trace and see what wire goes to what component etc etc.

Cheerz!

When you post up a question it makes it really simple for those answering your question if we have some information about your ride. The simplest thing is to create a signature and list the specs of your truck. Year, trim, drivetrain, engine, current mods plus anything else you would like to add. This way we are not asking for more information or blindly answering your questions. To create a signature click on User CP in the upper left and on that page, about the 10th option down on the left is the Edit Signature, go there fill out your info and save.

Pop the hood and check the ground wire bolted to the driver side inner fender right next to the starter relay. Could be broken/loose/corroded.

I'm sorry you find the truth to be so insulting. Bob and I have both given you things to check despite you not taking the time to type a legitimate sentence that makes sense to anyone. You're right, I'm such a dick for trying to figure out what's wrong.
