RE: Electrical Gremlin
I read on the list recently someone who had a similar problem, I think he ended up replacing the bulb holders on both sides due to corrosion inside. I am sure this was over the last week so maybe check the archives in case I am going mad.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Started on Saturday on '86 CGT.
Right turn-signal works fine depress brake - flasher goes like snit - take
brake off back to normal. Figure bulb burnt out or loose wire/ground.
Next right-turn - everything is back to normal - must be loose wire
Get home check bulbs, connections and circuits - everything is ok.
Sunday - everything works right then out-of-the-blue it starts again. Get
home grab circuit tester drive down rough road can't duplicate it. Sunday
night - go into town - starts again.
Monday - go to office for a couple of hours everything is ok. Drive out of
parking garage - first right turn - starts again. I jump out of the car
check the lights, and circuits everything is ok. Get back into car and it
Since I'm old - what am I missing? This has never happened before and I
haven't changed a thing in over a year.
Rear lights (bulb holders) are grounded separately. Replaced turn-signal
relay, all bulbs and right rear bulb holder on Sunday.
This morning I try again - can't duplicate it.
Btw - the token "make only left-hand turns" one-liners not welcome.
