turn signal problems

I have read about somewhat similar problems but not exactly what I have so I thought I would ask the forum. My 1995 Mercedes E300 is haveing turn signal problems. Mostly the L/R signals do not work. Occasionally however when I signal L or R with the switch, the turn signal comes on, blinks 2-3 times then goes out. It usually does not come back on again. Sometimes, but not always after starting the car anew (after sitting overnite) the signals will work briefly again then stop. This applies to either the L or R signal, they both work or not, the same. I have tried wobbling the multifunction relay (part no. 2018210047) in the relay box to see if its an intermittent connection problem but it had no effect. The windshield wiper and washer work just fine.

I dont mind replacing the multifunction switch or relay if those are the problems but I would like to know which before I buy and how I might further isolate the problem.
