The turn signals in my car go out periodically. The hazards have also not worked, but when the hazard button is pressed hard for a second or two, they start. They sometimes stay on, but then turn off. The signal lights at times start working again once this is done. The brights do work when set, both the temporary and permanent brights.

One flasher only. Check fuses first. Then suspect the flasher as a possibility. I have seen the hazard switch cause the turn signals to malfunction. Try pressing the hazard button in. If they work and flash as hazards you know the bulbs and flasher are ok. If the turn signals then work you have a defective multifunction switch (the hazard/turn signal/etc switch)
When the turn signals quit working pull up , down , front to back an back to front on the turn signal switch handle . Do they work when doing this ? Pontiac had bad switch . The power for the turn signals goes through the flasher / hazard module . Could be the switch or the module.
The HAZARD LPS fuse in the left hand instrument panel (LH IP) junction block supplies battery positive voltage to the flasher module, which is part of the hazard switch assembly. The TURN LPS fuse in the LH IP junction block supplies ignition positive voltage to the flasher module. The turn signal lamps may only be activated with the ignition switch in the ON position. When the turn signal switch is placed in either the left or right position, current flow is from the flasher module's output to the turn signal switch assembly. The flasher module then sends an on-off voltage signal to either the left or right turn signals and their instrument panel cluster (IPC) indicator. When the hazard switch is pressed, all the turn signal lamps will flash including both IPC turn signal indicators.
sounds like a dirty switch, happens a lot in the UK as the switch is checked for the safety every year so the dirt in the switch causes open circuits, it is a complicated switch, it has many contacts that do different things when in and out, try a salvage yard
First check turn signal fuse and relay if, they are good then try pressing on and off the hazard switch while turning the signal switch on.If signals start to work replace hazard switch.If hazard switch is good then replace turn signal switch.
Can you just check to make sure the ignition key switch is not staying over to far and not backing off when you try to start it. I had a truck that did that and it messed up my turn signals until I brought the key switch back a little after starting it. Just a simple idea. Be kind with your rating for me. Raz
it sounds like the relay has gone for your hazard lights, when you press the button to turn them on, it will disconect the power to the main indicators hence wont work when hazards pused in, try locating either the hazard flasher unit, or the relay , have you checked the fuses?
