Turn signal problems 2000 Camaro Sign In

Recently bought a 2000 Camaro and the turn signals were not working. I thought it was that the bulb was bad or a fuse was burnt.

Fixed and/or checked:

bulb sockets replaced (burnt)
grounding locations cleaned and reconnected
bulbs checked and replaced
fuses all good
flashers replaced (turn signal side bad)
DRL module cleaned and replaced with another one to see if board was bad

Current problem is when DRL active turn signals acting up. Left and right work as they should both front and back but the side marker flashes on the front right when left signal is on. When headlights are on (DRL off) left side stays illuminated and right signal works. But hazards dont work any more and the interior and dash lights flash with the hazard lights.

Some warning dash lights come on randomly. And radio comes on and off sometime depending on when the shifter is moved from park to drive.

Biggest issue is the lights but there seems to be some electrical issues all around and I dont know what else to do.

According to the diagram the side markers are not supposed to flash at all. They are just running lights.

My best guess is that you either have the wrong bulb or a damaged socket in one of the turn signals. That's about the only place the side markers can get flashing power.

You also want to make sure all the grounds for these lights are good.

IDK, I've found lenses, the sockets in junk lenses allow water in near impossible to get out.

OE bulbs should have a gooey grease (some got missed) to delay this BS. Socket pigtails available if suspect a wrong bulb can also as Hammer said already. Careful if you've gone LED bulbs!
