Question my lites stay on

why is it that on my 190 e 2.3 1987 benz the arrow for the right indicator stays on all the time,but the left indicator on the outside the left indictor stays on.
Could it be from a blow or broken headlamp which just recently occured or is it frfom something else.
Now when i flick the indictor switch to turn left the left indictaor works but it just flickers really fast. when i used the right one nothing happens.
What could this be from?
Do i need as fuse?

Haven't dealt with this on MBs, but on Asian models, one side flashing quickly usually means a bulb(turn signal) on the other side is out. Easy to check.

- Start car
- Turn on left turn signal - check left signal - front/back
- Do the same for the right side.

I'm betting you have a bulb, or at least one of the two filaments burnt out on the left side. Physically pull the bulbs and check the filaments closely.

A blown bulb is usually indicated in either of 2 ways. 1. The remaining bulbs flashing quickly or 2. no flashing at all
