Hazards work, turn signals dont

I recently went on a camping trip with my friends in my '98 ZJ. After leaving the gas station on the way back into town my turn singals no longer worked (and weirdly neither did my overhead console), but my hazards did.

My buddy and I checked stuff and determined that the fuses and the electronic flasher were all good. We dissassembled the multifunction casing around the steering wheel to check the hazard/turn signal switches.

We found that the right light always flashed when the hazards were on but the left was really sensitive to switch placement (it would work with the hazard switch half-pressed in and turn off when the turn signal lever was fiddled with) and it could just be due to the fact that the part is older and has worn out.

I would love a quick and easy fix and any help would be much appreciated. Im going to look for another MF switch and it would be nice to know if this would indeed fix it. Also, if anyone knows whats up with the overhead console that would be awesome also, although it is far less urgent.

UPDATE: Fuse 6 turned out to be faulty and powered both.
