Default Odd Turn signal issue

My Truck recently after an accident will not allow me to use my right turn signal as I usually would, if I click it up, it makes a fast clicking noise twice as fast as normal, but if I hold it up, it works fine, and my hazards are also fine. I don't understand how to fix it, any help is appreciated.

Sounds like bulbs are bad.

No, all bulbs work perfectly fine if held in the up position

Is there any easy way to check the relay? And how much are they to change or usually?

it should be under your dash on the driver's side up by the steering column. it'll be a bright color, either yellow or blue and look like the typical box relay. a replacement should be a few bucks if it is in fact bad

When my turn signals and hazard lights stopped flashing (ie. steady only), it was due to a bad relay. It was replaced under factory warranty. Relay had to be shipped in from Edmonton though.
