If it's a '95-'99, the multifunction (turn signal) switch is probably going bad

Does the left brake light not work at all? Have someone step on the brake pedal and see if it lights up in the back.

I had this problem recently where mine right one wasn't lighting up like normal only when i pressed the brake it would come on. The thing i did was pump the brake a few times in park then flip the turn signal switch back forth a few times and seems to be working now like normal. Dont know if that a solution or maybe its dumb luck that it started working again like normal other wise you might be looking at replacing turn signal switch. i have a 99z34 as well.

As it has been said, Turn signal switch. I opted to take this one to the mechanic. Looks like a real SOB of a job. I think the part retails for like 50-70$.
