Turn signals

97 explorer xlt. Left turn signal works but hit right turn signal and all I get is a buzzing from under the dash. Is this a faulty signal flasher or ?

Either your steering column multi-function switch lever is making bad contact, or the flasher relay is failing. The switch seems more likely because AFAICT the flasher passes both sides through the same circuit so if left works and right doesn't, it "seems" like the switch is all that remains unless you have some other issue like frayed wiring to the right, corrosion in the right bulb socket, bulb burnt out.

If it's the wiring, socket or bulb itself then it won't pass enough current to toggle the flasher relay. Probably not the bulb itself as it seems to pass some current or else it wouldn't be buzzing.
Please post your vehicle year/model/engine/(n)WD in help topics.
