left turn signal: frt and rear works fine
right turn signal: solid in rear, nothing in front
parking lights: fine all around

Welcome to the Forum:
What about brake lights on left rear? Sounds like the turn signal in the stalk. I had almost identical on my 99 Cherokee. I just operated the switch a couple of dozen times and it cleaned the contacts. I've never pulled the wheel, on a YJ, but there are hundreds of posts on this forum on how to do it, and the tools needed.


Regards,

Jim W

Sounds like the R/F side marker light bulb is out/broken connection.

FWIW, front side marker lights and front turn signals are designed to flash alternatively.

I think you're right.

I misunderstood the description. I thought the RF worked on hazard.

Last one I chased, a mouse had chewed a wire loom and cut one of the wires going to socket. The simple stuff is sometimes perplexing.

The bulb being in backwards is common. The required bulb is an 1157 dual element bulb that has 2 alignment pins that have higher/lower locations on the base of the socket to orient the bulb. They can be forced into the socket, and then it will have an issue.
