Never looked into turn signal problems on my TJ, but I'd go fishing for the relay, and see if that's the culprit. Should be cheap to replace, and if you got it out you could test it with some batteries, see if it's chattering.

A squirrel was seeking shelter and became trapped in your dash wiring harness.

That's a common issue after the dash area gets wet but it usually goes away once it dries out in a day or two. I wouldn't start replacing anything yet.
When you have a choice, buy American.
