Hi! So recently my firebird has developed a problem where when I turn the right blinker on the headlights flash. I've noticed that the high beam indicator also flashes when the right blinker is on. The left blinker works just fine and I've replaced both blinker modules. I was hoping someone would know what to do in this situation. Any help would be appreciated thanks!

Welcome to the forum.

 

Sorry, but my bad eyes saw 91 instead of 81.

It sounds to me like he has a bad ground to body (radiator support) on the right side. I am not sure of the location, but try the one circled in red on the 2nd image.
