The left turn signal flashes/clicks at the normal rate. The right side
however, flashes at about 3 or 4 times the speed that it should. What could
be causing this?
All of the bulbs are fine, and the proper bulbs are flashing on both
sides/front and back. It was fine the last time I used it, but the following
has occurred since then:
1) The only the car has been sitting unused for about 5 months.
2) I just finished replacing the front turn signal lenses, (and some
mechanical stuff like flex disks, steering components, etc.)
3) Also changed the instrument cluster and I'm hoping that that's not
Turn the emergency flashers on and compare the left and right to each other.
Look for a bulb on one side that is not on the other side. Also look at the
side markers. Make sure the brightness is the same for each bulb. I have
won many bets on this problem and the answer is almost always a bulb out or
one is dim compared to the other side.

Your diagnosis is 100% accurate.
With the emergency flasher on, the right front was dimmer than the left
front. I switched the bulbs, and then the right side was fine. However when
the left signal was switched on, both sides flashed. I removed the left
side bulb and made sure it was seated corectly and now EVERYTHING IS WORKING
