I've replaced the bulbs, replaced the flasher relay, but the right turn signals still won't blink as they should. I've done everything I can think of, have any suggestions? Please and thank you

What exactly did you do before this started happening? Also, the front AND rear signals must have good bulbs in order to flash correctly.

I just bought this car and it was already like that. And I replaced the bulbs with brand new ones to try and fix the problem but it didn't solve it

I'm not sure about the RWD Fleetwood, but I know on later Cadillacs, there are actually 2 flashers - one for turn signals and one for hazard lights.
Did you replace the correct one?

I was asking to help with diagnosing the problem. Your new flasher is not working or isn't getting enough power to flash. If all the lights that blink are in working order and you can turn the blinkers on manually, I'd say to get an electronic flasher. They flash based on time instead of heat. They are cheap enough to take a chance on buying without losing much money if it's not the problem. Not sure what it could be of the electronic flasher doesn't work.

Ahh okay. Yeah I might've replaced the wrong one. I didn't know there was two flashers

I think the other one is clipped onto the top of the column.
Okay I found it and replaced it with the new one and it works, but advanced auto gave me a #552 instead of a #323. Does it really matter?

As long as it flashes how it should, you shouldn't have any problems. You can get ones that make different noises or flash at different rates but the stock one does the trick
