right turn signal buzzzzz, no blink

This randomly started the other day... Left turn signal works normal, when I hit the right blinker I get a buzzzzzzzzzz from the dash, green arrow on cluster dimly lights and the turn signals just stay steady on that side. I have LEDs front and rear from vleds.Com and have been working fine for over 6 months. Any suggestions to the problem?

I had that same thing happen to me when I was about to turn right the other day...however, it only buzzed because I didn't quite push the turn signal all the way up. I tried it again just pushing with a little pressure and "BUZZ"!..pushed it all the way over and it stopped...WTH?

Try messin with the Hazard button. It can cause a poor connection and make the relay buzz because of an inadequate ground. Flip it On/Off a few times.

I had that problem with a 2002 f450 the other day. It's most likely the blinker relay you are hearing. I replaced it and it fixed the problem. They have them on the shelf at Advanced...

And those are led friendly. Another thing may be a bulb shorting out. I had that problem with a bulb. U can switch the bulb and see if the problem switches with the bulb.

Thanks guys, I'm offshore and can't try anything till the 20th. I knew the blinker fluid joke was coming lol. I'll try these things when I get home. I tried pushing it hard, flipping the hazards( which work fine) and the bulb looks fine. I'll try the relay and switching the bulb first is the relay under the Hood in the fusebox?
