I have a 99' Durango and my right front turn signal started acting up. It started to blink at a fast rate of speed unlike the left which is normal. The outer light went out so I replaced the bulb and now neither light comes on yet it still makes the fast sound. I put the old bulb back in but still no luck. My rear turn signal works but blinks at the faster rate. I can't pass inspection without it working so I wanted to know if anyone come lend any advice how to proceed. Thanks.

I checked the housing for the bulb plug and did notice some corrosion, so I scraped off as much as I could and used some canned air to clean out. I put extra bulb grease on the bulb connections and plugged them back in. I still had no light on my right front turn signal. After 2 days, all of a sudden my turn signal sounded normal (not the fast clicking) and my bulbs were working again, so I quickly went down and got the inspection and it has been working fine now for the last 2 weeks. I'm not sure what happened but maybe that bulb grease finally worked through some of the corrosion and established a good connection with the bulb housing plug.
Even though it wasn't an immediate remedy, I think the cleaning of the bulb contacts that hold the bulb and the extra bulb grease probably did the trick. I will revisit this page if my situation changes but so far so good. Thank you guys for your comments, they were much appreciated.
Scotiadawg, I have included an image i found online to hopefully help you out. I should have taken pictures while I had mine apart but forgot to. In the bulb housing there are 2 metal strips that pinch in that hold the actual bulb in place while making a connection. Those metal pieces are what became corroded. Just scrape them with a thin flat screwdriver and apply extra bulb grease.
