Check your bulb sockets. Sometimes there is corrosion.  On the front lights, sometimes the terminals do not make a good contact so when you wiggle the wires they work.  The grounds in the front get corroded as well.  Lastly, it can be the switch behind the steering wheel. 
Every Pinto I have owned has had one of those issues which caused the turn signals not to work or work properly.
