I still say you've got a bad ground, there should be a green connector on the frame rail, which is a known weak pint on those trucks, one of those wires should be a ground.......... , I'd clean that connector then, try running a temp jumper wire from the neg post on the battery back to the tail light socket and see if the problem presists.

Thank you for that wring schematic. It helped out a lot. It looks like the hazard light are completely different than the turn signal brake lights. So if the switch was bad would the hazards still work?

Bad connection at the turn switch connector or a flakey wire in the column.

The turn signal harness inside the column may be worn by the ignition switch activating rod.

Green wire coming loose at the turn switch itself.

Turn switch is a strange animal and does a few things.
Also has 3 points of supplied power

Switched Battery power to the brake circuit (via brake switch)
Battery power to supply the hazards
Ignition power to supply the turns

Front and rear turns are separated into different circuits

In a left turn, the left rear brake light circuit actually shuts off and power is supplied by the ignition circuit thru the flasher

Lot of things going on in that little switch
