I can't parse the first sentence, Nick ...
Do you mean that under the rapid flash condition (at the cluster indicator end), none of the external signal lamps are working at all?
Here (attached) is the 1998 turn signal wiring diagram. As you can see, it's a convoluted wiring scheme that has the turn signals and hazard lights tied together.
There might be any number of electrical glitches that could explain these symptoms. That's the problem.
However, I'd start with the combination switch (turn signal switch on the column). A bad electrical connection for the RH signal circuit would explain everything. It might be that the combo switch is bad, or that the wiring leading down the column has been kinked (or whatever ...) causing a transient short or broken connection.
