Check all your sockets with the bulbs out as they get corroded but it sounds more like a ground issue.

I would check in your steering wheel . sounds like problem in the wiring where it comes up the column to the switch where your cancelling cam sits for your turn signals. I have had problems like that and pulled the wheel and found wires were rubbing against the collar and were cut thru causing a short. hope this helps you out.

also check your plug that runs up the bottom of your steering column to where it plugs in sometimes wires like to break in the harness and cause hidden shorts which are hard to find.

Most common problems are:
Bulb sockets either making poor connections to the bulb because the metal insert has worked itself out a bit or is making a poor ground

Turn signal switch, buried in the steering column. It is a bit of a job getting to it, so it pays to do your homework with a volt meter to isolate the issue first.

i figured out the problem a while back just didnt get back on here..... my problem was in the steering cam, the little copper straps were bridged and touching causing the turn signal lights to go crazy like hazard lights....
