does the right hand turn signal keep blowing the fuse. if so, remove one bulb (back) and see if it still happens. if not replace the bulb and remove the other bulb (front). if it still happens it sounds like something in the signal light wiring is shorted. best place to check for shorts and easiest is the connectors itself.
there is a loose connection as you have found out by wiggling the wires so a further investigation will be required , find out which wire/s are loose and repair , most likely the earth wire to the chassis/body
It could be the turn signal switch. the white wire comes from the brake switch into the turn signal switch. Make sure that is hot with brakes applied. the wires coming out of the turn signal switch to the left is Yellow, and Dark Green for the right. Same for the turn signals.
If there's one thing that gets my shorts in a bunch it's trying to track down a short circuit. I had a 79 Trans Am that did the exact same thing that you described. With out looking at it I would say that there is an exposed wire that causes short circuit. It may be in the turn signal switch, or even somewhere in the steering column.
One wire is for the brake/directional filament and the other wire is for the tail light. The fixture should be grounded when it is attached to the bracket. To test which is which (the brown wire is USUALLY the ail light) make sure the fixture is grounded and touch a hot wire to each of the wires coming from the fixture. Watch to see which wire lights up the brighter filament and this is the brake/directional light. The dimmer filament if the tail light. Brakes lights and directional lights are both the same filament. Wen the brakes are applied, both lights are activated. When a direction light is turned on, it simply flashes the brake light filament.
Check the terminals inside the bulb socket also you could turn on right side turn signals and while holding socket in hand move wiring at base of socket to see if you might have wiring problem if that is ok leave signal and start moving back harness to see if you have a broken wire.
