Strange problems such as what you have described are usually caused by a poor ground connections. Without a manufacturer wiring diagram you are going to have a hard time locating where these ground connections are. There can often be ground connections in the wiring harness connectors. What you can try is to remove the negative battery terminal from the battery and to connect an ohmmeter to the negative of the battery and then check suspected ground points.

I replaced my tail/ turn signals in my 1997 olds Aurora with led lights. The turn signals don't flash but the hazard lights blinks. What's the problem?

I would suspect that it has something to do with the flasher unit. They operate based on current draw heating up a bimetal piece that causes the blinking. Four-ways (hazards) draw more current since there are more filments/LEDs drawing current. By changing from incandescent to LED you have reduced the current draw on the flasher. You may need a different flasher that uses lower current to get turn signals to work. Here is a link that explains it and provides info on how to get the proper flasher.

Loose connections or intermittent door switches are causing this. Check each door switch by opening only 1 door at a time.

My dash lights and radio lights blink from bright

It sounds like a poor Ground connection, Start by checking the connector that connects to the Instrument Cluster then see if one wire is terminated to the Metal components of the Dash Board. This would be the Master Ground connection for ALL Instrument lights and typically would include any other Lights on the Same Circuit. You will most likely find a loose sheet metal screw making this Ground Connection. With a high resistance connection the lights would be somewhat dim. If they flash between Dim and Bright it is an intermittent connection causing it. Almost always this will be found to be a loose screw connecting the Ground to the Chassis.

There appears to be a short; the car will drain a new battery within a few days when parked and not even running. In addition (and it may be connected to the above condition) the dash lights blink on/off...

It sounds as though you have a bad ground which would have depleated your old battery as well, by having an intermittent ground when recharging. I had these exact symptoms and even pulled and tested my alternator and battery before nailing down a loose cable link beside the battery. Finally I saw my dash lights flicker when I hit a bump at night and the wave hit me. I never saw the symptom in daylight....

You could test from the body of the car to the battery for a voltage drain with a meter but I would suspect a corroded or loose ground. I would do this by process of elimination.
Remove and clean your negative and positive cables and inspect them and the wire itself for corrosion. Then track back to the alternator and remove and clean your terminals and inspect there as well. Check for an additional ground strap and consider buying a braided mesh type from the local auto parts store and install. Then check your results and post back.

One possibility is that the light in not firmly seated in its socket inside the stereo. If you find that the blinking is worse when driving over bumpy surfaces this will help confirm that the issue is related to an intermittent electrical connection.
