Left taillight is weaker, than right, when braking, using turn signal, backing. Additionally, when using left turn signal, get a double blink on left side, and right side blinks at the same time (very weakly).

See my profile,

I am gonna try to take you thru EZ stuff 1st, prior to you getting a new turn signal switch.

Do you think you might have HE// Damage (not Hail Damage) from wild offroading? Check to see if you have snatched something loose.

2nd, Determine which elements burn in the bulbs---with each action you do with the switch (bright one, dim one, tall short, both at the same time)

3rd, Remove the bulbs clean contacts on bulb and on the base, if posssible. (Do this with the lights off). Use Dielectric Grease on the contacts, when reinstalling. Parts stores has it in tubes and sometimes packets. Look for bent, broken or corroded contacts in the holders.

4th, Check connections to the wiring harness (from the lights) Pull them apart, use the Dielectric Grease on them too.

5th, Buying at least one "NEW TEST BULB" might aid in finding out you have a bad bulb in your system.

6th, Check all grounds to the lights. Take them loose and clean then with a wire brush or sandpaper, then reinstall.
