The signals feed through the hazard switch. If all signals work properly, confirmed by someone looking at them outside and they operate continuously in each mode for like 10 seconds without faltering, then look at the hazard switch as being faulty. Could be the internal contacts. IF you check the FSM, then you can check the switch for continuity when it is rest mode or engaged mode. This should help confirm the switch is at least making an internal connection. Does the fuse light a test light to ground when you have it installed and the tester at each fuse terminal on the top of the fuse? Fuses can appear good and not be ...

I had hazard light problems because I had a shorted bulb in the front turn signal housing/wire short.

Page 130 http://www.lilevo.com/mirage/89%20Colt% ... 0TURBO.pdf

It is a complicated circuit but essentially the hazard controls activation of all signal bulbs, so any switch/relay functions it creates, could be bad if the hazard switch is bad, or the relay is bad. Relays should be a dime a dozen in the yards if you can find the identical one or order one from RockAuto or similar parts warehouse systems. Just be sure it is identical so it can handle the loads. Never hurts to have a spare if it tests okay, but also consider that a spare Hazard switch is not a bad thing either. You will have to wrestle the upper gauge cluster surround and it will likely break unless you have a new one installed recently. The screws holding everything in place are notorious for being tight and snapping plastics. Heck, the plastic breaks without anyone even pulling on it!

If your bulbs work, looks somewhere other than the bulbs. The function of the bulbs is good, so the control within the relay is where I would look next or the switch.
