Weird blinker issue

Change the bulb, and make sure the socket is clean and free of corrosion. If the socket is badly corroded replace it.

Have you taken a gander at the rear passenger side upper wheel well. On my 83 there's a block where the taillights and a few others harness together, I had problems with this as many others have. The wheel well rusts out and leaves all the wiring exposed to moisture, rain, mud. EVERY single connection on this block was corroded and I had to replace all the connections.
I had issues with my tailights, which is what led me to the rear quarter panel wiring.

I too suspect this is a wiring problem, but maybe best to replace the bulb to eliminate that from what could be giving you trouble. Possible socket broblem..............Look very closely at the bulb socket and wiring connections to the socket. Look for possible cracks in the plastic socket housing. Check the interior of the socket to see that the spring prongs are making good connection to the bottom of the bulb.

The first thing that I check when there is wierd electrical problems are the grounds. Bad grounds cause all kinds of strange problems.

STOP DONT INSPECT REAR WHEEL WELL!
apologies but I should have considered that this is a 92 legacy. I'm refering to old gen wagons.
wrong forum appologies.
Pick up a cheap OBDII scanner from Harbor Frieght, and carry it in your car preferably near you. Next time you get the check engine light, pull over and turn the key back to acc and then to on ( not running). scan the computer and write down the code(s) that are presented. look them up online when you get home.

92 was not yet OBDII so that won't work.

I read this before and thought you meant the CEL would blink in unison with the turn signal or brake light.
If the CEL just happens to turn on while the bulb is not working that may just be coincidence.
Either way the bulb issue is either a bad bulb, socket, or electrical connection to the bulb.
