That sounds like you have got a ground problem in the steering column wiring, check the grounds by the drivers lower dash mount, and there is one behind the center console just below the radio/heater control. It would also be a good idea to check and clean the power and grounds out under the hood.

Possibly a shorted turn signal switch. HTH. -Jim
