Right turn signals dont work??

Hey, I just bought a 1998 BMW M3. Literally a week after i bought it, all the right turn signals on the car didn't work for some reason. The corner, sidelight, and the turn signal on the brake light are not working. Sometimes they flicker for a second and then don't work again. What could the problem? Any advice would be helpful.

Thanks,
Ian

Since the left side works, I'd have a look at the signal lever switch contact for the right side. Do all the lights flash with the hazard turned on?

That would then be the up side contact of the turn lever switch, I'd say.

That does sound like the turn signal switch, ? though, have you checked all your fuses, the Bentley Manual shows 2 different fuses for the turn signals #23 5A & #34 fuses 15A.......also the #8 7pin relay controls the turn signals/hazards......I would pull it & reinstall it.......sometimes just the slightest corrosion will cause a poor contact.......also I assumed you have checked each bulb on the right side.....make sure none of them are burned out. I would do all this first before considering replacing that turn signal switch......
