Welcome to the Team!

Also welcome to chasing electrical gremlins. My first guess is the turn signal switch is defective.

Welcome to the site. I'm going to tell you what you already know - I just don't see the logic to what is going on with your signal, and I've spend a couple of DOZEN hours on mine.

Best I can say is, focus on the 'doesn't work' part, use a multimeter or test light and the schematic and start at the fuse following every point in the schamtic.
It's time consuming and it sucks but it never lies and never fails!
