Default Turn signal issue?

So today my turn signal is acting up. Right turns the signal speed is about twice as fast as "normal" as well as the lamps on the front and back. Left turns however, are normal. This happened to my first truck and I fixed it but I can't remember how. I know it's a simple fix. All help is much appreciated!

Whichever one illiminates the turn signal. Would also be a brake light, i think explorers do that. So just turn all lights on and see whats missing

My explorer did it the other day actualy, but all lights worked and it went away the next day. Remember to use di-electric grease on the bulbs to avoid corrosion on the connecting surfaces

Yeah I got it, just a burned out brake light. I knew it was an easy fix, $6 from Walmart and I'm good to go. Thanks everyone
