Turn signals come one sporadically, hazard lights not at all. Could this be the turn signal relay needing replaced?
Do you

If they light up but not flash, then the flasher needs replaced. If nothing turns on when actuated, then I would suspect the switch is going bad.

If they decide to work, they light up and blink, So replacing the multi switch is the way to go? Also the most expensive way lol

I feel that is where the problem is coming from. However, have it tested before purchasing a new one.

Some parts stores will do it for you. You will need to call and ask.

Last question I promise, can they test it on the vehicle or do I need to remove it?

It would be tested differently on the car and I doubt a store would do it. Please, contact the stores around you to make sure they can do it before you go to all the trouble. Also, make sure the battery is disconnected at least 30 minutes before you start working around the air bag.

So I replaced the multi switch hazard lights come for a bit then shut of on there own. Also when I hit the brake the left turn signal light comes on.I don't know where to go from here. Could it be a sign of a bigger electrical problem?

You need to find a wiring schematic and double check all the connections. I have access to one, but I have no way to copy and paste it.

I wired it exactly the way it was. I'll take it to this mechanic friend of mine this weekend to get a second opinion, maybe he can see something I cant.
