You have either a directional Switch or a Flasher issue. I have had a 50/50 on each part. The directional flasher IS THE HAZARD warning switch. Try that its the cheapest of the two If not its the Switch Good Luck

Thank you for your insight. If I replace the hazzard flasher, how do I get into the dash to unplug it? I see that the switch itself is located nest to 2 vents in the dashboard. How do I remove the flasher? Do I have to remove the vents that are located next to the hazzard switch to gain access to the switch itself, and if so, how do I remove the vents without damaging them?
