If I understand you right based on your post/description, the signal lights would still turn on even if any or both of the flasher relays are removed. Should this be the case, then the signal lights are not getting the power from the flasher relays but from the brake light circuit.
Perhaps your concern is not with any of the flasher, but simply missing or loose ground more particularly with the rear lights. Perhaps you could try determining which of the wires for the brake lights and signal lights (as they come out of the light assembly) would be ground . A test and even possibly a temporary workaround is to hard wire a second ground connection from the determined ground wire of the lights and attach it to any conveniently located bolt or screw to the body. it may be to your advantage to do this on all the rear lights assembly.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

with the blinker on hold the socket in your hand and wiggle on the bulb and see if it starts to blink. if so then you have a bad socket that needs replaced or sometimes can be cleaned and apply electrical grease. if you cant get the bulb to blink then get in vehicle and watch the signl indacator while putting pressure on the selector in which ever direction your having problems with. if you get it to work properly by doing this then you will need a new switch .

The earth connection to the light units is poor, probably due to a corroded screw on an earth wire between the light unit and the vehicle chassis or even a corroded nut and washer, holding the light unit onto the chassis. When this happens, the bulbs being illuminated try to draw their earth connection through the other bulbs in the unit, causing them to illuminate as power is drawn through them.
Remove the nuts that hold the light unit to the chassis and use a wire brush to clean the nuts, screws and area of the chassis where they touch and reassemble. This should cure your problem. In the event that this doesn't work, find a place on the chassis nearby where you can attach a new well connected earth wire and then attach the other end to the metal body of the light unit. You MAY have to find where the earth for the light unit is currently placed and connect directly to that depending on how the particular light unit is connected and wired.

SOURCE: turn signal lights dont work
may not be a solution for you but when mine quit working, found 2 places where fuses had to be changed. keep in mind that mine was a different type vehicle than yours but could be a similar type problem.
