Does the right side turn signal flash at the rear?  It uses the same 
filament as the brake light.  It is possible that you have a turn signal 
switch problem.

Make sure that the turn switch is centered (neutral position) on the 
steering column and then try stepping on the brake pedal.  Let us know the 
results of that test.

Later, JR
