That description sounds like the actual switch or the flasher is bad. You say you can push the switch and the lights flash a couple times very fast then stop? Do the lights flash or you just hear clicks? The flasher is located in the convenience center, under the dash near the firewall. It sticks out the bottom. I would try it first. If that does not help you will likely need a new multi-function switch.
Oh, this has all stock type bulbs correct, not upgraded to LED? Those can cause problems like this because they don't provide the correct load to the vehicles electronics.
