It sounds like a bad turnsignal switch to me, the way you describe it.

May have a bad flasher unit in the under dash fuse box, if all lights are working.

Could be a loose ground wire. Usually connected to a bolt on the frame near the rear axle.

Several possiblities that come mind. Turn signal switch, problem with a weak wire or connection that could be anywhere in circuit including between switch to fuse box to sockets, corrosion in sockets or a flasher or bulb. Sometimes bulbs filiments (the real fine wire you see in the bulb) can be weak braeak away temporarily but re-weld it self until it happens again.

Blown fuse or bad flasher unit. Often, cars use different flasher for the turn signals and the flasher, so it is possible for the hazards to work and not the turn signals.
