A bad bulb or connection could exhibit this behavior. Make it behave 


Scientists seek to understand what is,
while engineers seek to create what never was.
As the "Bad Astronomer" Phil Plait says, "Teach a man to reason, and 
he can think for a lifetime."

Subject: [T2] turn flasher/clicker

To indicate R turn, everything still works fine, incl a loud
click which I can hear (whereas the corresponding part in my car I
can often not hear).
But trying to indicate L turn evokes only a rude noise which
I'm thinking of recording and then selling as an MP3 to the producers
of, say, Renn + Stimpy.  And the L-turn lights flash at c.10 Hz in
approx time with this buzzing.
Is the turn flasher/clicker a 'double' device, allowing one
side to fail like this, or is it a 'single' device incapable of such
bias?  Or could the L-turn fault be caused by a corroded connection
to one or both of those lights?
