Might be the flasher relay or the actual flasher stalk.

Both are accessed under the steering wheel, the black bottom cover.. remove that and bust out with a multi meter @ the relay and the pins on the control stalk. Track down where power isnt reaching. Otherwise its common for one side not to work ebcause on an e30 someone forcibly put a blinker bulb in the wrong direction and it fucks the system up. Check to make sure the front bumper bulbs are installed in the correct positions too.

Could also be as simple as a dirty contact on the bulb. Take out the bulb and make sure the contacts are clean (no green, black, or white crusty stuff) Dielectric grease can be a bad thing too although it keeps out water to an extent, old grease can become hard & crack holding water in as well.
