Default Turn signal trouble

I recently noticed an issue with my ram. As I pulled up to the gas station, I saw in the reflection that my front turn signal lamp was on.I placed the truck in park and released the brake and the turn signal lamp went out. The left turn signals illuminate normally. I checked all the bulbs and replaced the ones I found burned out out. It still does it and now I have another issue. With the headlights off, and the left turn signal ON, the right side turn signals flash dimly. It does not do it with the headlights on. It is only when the lights are off and left turn signal on. I also checked the grounds under the hood. I am seriously confused at this point.

I had a similar issue and it turned out to be a short on the board in the passenger tail light. A hairline crack allowed water in to create a short in my wiring. It was clearly visible once I removed the tail light and inspected the board. I missed it when I checked the bulbs, i went back and inspected the board after advice from a friend.

Hope this might offer some help..

Thank for the info. I will look at it again tonight after work. I was also thinking t could be the multifunction switch but not sure since it does it only when the left signal is on and not when the headlights are on. It was just a thought. I read somewhere about a TIPM that was causing a similar issue. Any thoughts on that?
