Default Turn signal issue

1993 240

Hazzard lights work fine, left turn signals work fine but I Intermittently have a problem with the right side (front and rear together).

Sometimes it clicks fast but doesn't light up, dash lights or outside. Then it starts to slow the clicking noise, dash indictator dimly starts working and eventually dash indicator is normal brightness and outside lenses flash.

I've replaced fuses, swapped relays and removed the connections to the switch and cleaned them up. Still happens. Can go a week with no problem then it comes back.

I would just buy another switch but mine has CC and it works well and those seem to be much more expensive. Anyone have any suggestions I could try before having to buy a new one?

Old and boxy but good.

The very fast clicking means there is a bad connection in the circuit. I would clean all the ground connections and take a good look at the bulbs in the sockets. They may need some cleaning up as well.
