Default Turn Signal Stuck ??

So I just got doing the hockey puck mod "which is breezy" and when it drive it around and suddenly my right turn signal is stuck. The light come on but it doesn't flash. The hazard lights work just fine along with the left turn signal. Ideas ?

On the interior side of the firewall (inside the car), about where your left foot sits (but up a little higher) are two, round, silver relays (about the diameter of a half-dollar). Pull them out and push them back in.

Try the turn signals.

If that does not work, swap the relays and see if the problem goe to the left turn signal.

If it does, replace the defective relay (car parts store).

Take the hocky puck out, turn it 1/4 turn and re-install it, this should fix it!

I think that one is for the turn signals and the other is for the emergency hazards and I don't remember which is for which, but if you pull one then the other you can quickly tell. I have a 95 "B" and always thought that both left and right turn signals share a single flasher (can't turn both ways at once). So if the one side flashes and the other doesn't ... well, that's odd. Turn signal switch ??

When a flasher goes bad the lights will either not blink at all or they blink super fast and i've seen the same thing when a bulb is bad (although if you checked the bulbs with either the turn signal or e-flasher and they worked it's not a bulb).
