Erratic turn signal operation can be a result of a failing turn signal flasher relay which will require replacement.

Car at the dealer right now to have it replaced. Unfortunately, it's not the relay behind the hazard switch, but the one behind the steering wheel...$$$ -
I had erratic turn signal and "studdered" (as others reported. I researched the "flasher relay" finding it resided behind the Hazard button. I almost bought a replacement but I tried pushing the hazard flasher button (which I hadn't in years). In the first attempt it didn't work at all, in the second attempt it did, and better, it resolved the turn signal functionality completely! Apparently the connection had eroded from non-use. I had feared it was the signal switch, which is a huge repair but it was not. Try this before you spend many dollars! -
Flasher stops flashing. I need to know how to remove the defective one. -
Just as described on Repair Pal. -
Turn signal works erratically, mostly not working. -

Erratic turn signals and hazards. Not a bulb or fuse problem, seems to be the turn signal relay. -
