    noticed that when my lights were turned on, the right turn signal indicator was staying on. I replaced the bulb for the turn signal, but that didn't solve the problem (And the bulb is not as bright as the stock bulb....[side note:don't buy bulbs at WalMart]).
    Is this a relay problem? Bulb problem or what?
    Turn signal works fine, just the indicator (on the dash) stays on when the lights are turned on

    could be a grounding problem. Also the socket the bulbs plug into can get caroded, can buy replacements at just about any auto parts store, and they are pretty cheap.

    yup--grounds or...

    It could be a socket or ground problem like trailblazer said..also,a rear tailight bulb on the same side might have the filament for the parking lights touching the one for the brake/directional light..they will both light up at the same time,(not always!) and make the indicator on the dash glow constantly..sometimes a bad flasher does that too,even though it still works..
