Major Electrical Conundrum

Here's the basics, and I hope someone can lend some insight:

1) When I turn my runners and/or headlights on, the center console illumination (climate control, radio buttons, cup holders, etc.) AND rear/tail lights flash exactly 5 times then go off. Brake lights still work on the 3rd light and Right Rear.

2) When L turn signal activated, the L rear turn signal flashes normally (bulbs are fine), THEN after a few seconds, the rear stops and the front flashes rapidly. This is not the case on the right side. The rear Left will also stop eventually after initiating the hazard light sequence.

3) If I "flick" the L turn signal (for lane change; where it flashes 3x automatically), it works...BUT, the left rear will flash 5 more times, after the front Left has stopped.

4) All fuses are checked and nothing looks blown

5) Battery and alternator check out

6) No issues with drivability, drivetrain, headlights, dash lights, cabin lights, reverse lights, or engine/fuel.

I am dreading the idea that this is a TIPM issue.
