1994 Dodge Dakota turn signal/brake lights issue

Hi, Have a problem here - would appreciate any troubleshooting. Passenger side turn signals/brake lights don't work.
1) Since it is on that side only, shouldn't be the bulbs. I replaced those
tonight and cleaned the contacts off. They were totally disgusting, but they are pretty clean now. Didn't check voltage on them, left my multimeter at home.
2) The turn signal makes the "click" sound, so its not the flasher. However, the flasher makes a faster clicking noise when the passenger/not working signals are turned on, than when the drivers side is on.
3) The original fuse box was replaced with a Tridon 552. Called Advance Auto, they said 20 amp fuses control the turn signals. Checked all 20 amp'ers and they are fine. Checked a few other fuses, nothing has been blown (can't be the wiring can it).
Thanks for any help,
Vic

It's absolutely the wiring... if the fuse were bad, none of the lights would work (the right side isn't fused separately from the left). The faster cycling of the flasher relay indicates a decreased load on the circuit, ie. burned-out bulb. Since you checked all the bulbs, it's either a bad socket, or damaged wiring to that socket.
Get your meter, and start checking things out.

if the r/s rear isn't working ,only-yes could be wiring-i'd start close to the switch though-i have a feelin you have lost part of the t/s switch should have three flashing wires-one flasher power-one r/f ,one r/r -if you have that-then you have a broken wire-or even a shorted wire -,although that would blow the brake light fuse-unless it burned your switch contacts for r/r first-sounds complicated but its not-start near the switch-

The same flasher is being used for both sides so if one side works, it can't be the flasher.

same flasher... different contacts.
had an 85 power ram that a side failed because boat trailer light failed (short) and burned contacts for that side.

Sure will. Haven't been able to rule out anything yet other than its not bulbs. Been working on it - attempting too.
