Sounded like a faulty switch to me, but maybe its a faulty flasher relay.....

In my Bentley service manual, it says there is a Emergency flasher relay #8 in the fuse panel box in left-hand rear corner of the engine compartment.....in the diagram below #8 relay would be: 2nd from the firewall (rear) center...row.
