Hi, I am John Mc, a Ford dealer tech. I hope I can help you quickly and accurately. One moment while I work on your problem.
You have hit the nail on the head with the loose connection! It is most likely caused by a bad connector that is on the turn signal switch. We replace these all the time. Just go to your local dealer and ask for a turn signal switch connector. You remove the wires from yours one at a time and install them into the new connector. Once done it should be back to normal.

how detailed is it to get to this turn signal switch
You just have to remove the steering column shrouds.
Then use a torx bit to remove the turn signal switch.
that sounds easy enough lol and this switch causes the brake light to fail also?
Yes, it is the same wiring for the brake lights.
ok great I'll give that a try would you happen to have an approx cost of this connector by any chance
Yes it's around $15.
