Are you sure that you have not got a lamp out/blown? remember there are three each side, it olny needs one to be blown, if the relay had gone then one side would not work at all.

Mine did this on my clear indicators, found out that the contacts were not tight enough to the bulb. I prised the contacts closer out a little so as to give a better contact with the bulb, this sorted the problem.

If that doesn't fix it, it could be a broken wire somewhere. You'll need to disconnect the various segments and test them. If you do, have fun! ;o)
