Ahh. This is an easy one. The most common cause of problems like this is a failed lamp (bulb). The lamps in most cars are dual-filament lamps. One filament (the dimmer one) is for taillights or front marker lights. The other (the brighter one) is used for brake lights and turn signals.
Sometimes when a bulb fails, one of the filaments breaks and the broken fragment touches the other filament. This connects the light circuit to the brake/turn-signal circuit and you get strange effects like the one you describe.
Fixing this is easy,

your socket may not be grounded properly, I have seen this before, and the simplest way to fix is change the socket with a new one.Not another used one it may also be bad.

Hello. The symptoms you are describing are likely due to a poor ground. Temporarily install a new ground wire by securing a piece of copper wire to the frame with a self tapping screw. Use this ground wire along with the hot wire to see if each of these lights works. If it does, trace the ground wire back to the frame, unscrew it and clean up the metal with emery cloth so you reestablish a good ground.

That vehicle has all three switches attached to the same module. Spray a little wd-40 into the flasher switch. Sometimes the slide on the flasher switch gets a little sticky and won't allow the turn signal to work independently. If that isn't the case, there is a repair kit for that available on ebay. the module of course costs around three hundred to replace but could possibly be found at a boneyard for much less. Also, check ebay for that module. Hopefully the WD-40 will fix it. Good luck.
