TurnOne2000 Hans&Feet is the the best at reading schematics and putting it out there in plain and simple words.

I almost missed it myself. I was about to go pull out my manual and look at the wiring diagram.

Each of those pins in those two connectors controls only one circuit, and since we have dual turn indicators (L & R), it could just be that the R turn signal pin is loose.

It could, depending on how far back the pin is. My pins actually popped out of the green plastic housing a long time ago, so whenever I take the green connectors apart and put them back together, I push them together really firmly and then wrap a piece of electrical tape around them tightly. I then slide the rubber cover down over the connectors, place it back in its place and push the cable stay up firmly so the whole assembly stays where it's supposed to and then turn on the ignition and check all light functions.

I did buy a set of replacement connectors that are much nicer than the stock crappy ones, but I've been too lazy to install them. Greg Riddle did a write-up on one of the boards (here or the Cafe') and posted which product he used.
