On my 1997 there is a separate flasher for the turn signals and emergency flashing lights. The two flashers are both located next to the fuse bank inside the truck which for my year is on the drivers side of the dash. I'll bet you blew one of the flashers.
Ok, this MAY be your problem ,it sounds all too familiar.
Your Hazard switch goes into your turn signal switch assembly. All of your signals and Brake lights actually go in there too. How else does one of the lights be bright with the brakes on, and the other flashes from the signal being on... !!?? haha
If the fuses are good, just go order a Turn signal switch. Your describing the symptom to a T for the turn signal switch crapping out.
If you play with your hazard switch enough, you may get the contacts to renew and they may work again until you touch or jolt the hazard switch again Dust and grime and whatever just settles in there, stuff gets grimy, the contacts get bad, and you go to push the switch in and BAM, game over.
BTW, I know the issue cause I have replaced dozens in various vehicles. GM trucks are good for the Same problem.
You are right, that could very well be the problem. I had that happen on a 1989 Honda Accord, only when the hazard switch went it took the turn switch with it so I HAD to replace the assembly to get my blinkers back.
