Can't swear to it, but I don't think you have a "module", just the old style flasher. It should be under the dash on one side or the other of the steering column.

Ranger's right. You have two old school canister-shaped "thermal flashers." One for the hazards in the fuse box. One for the signals near the base of the steering column, underneath. I haven't been down there in a while, but I think it's a little to the right, kinda hanging there. I don't think it's hard to see or get at.

Does the turn signal work for one direction, or not at all? There's a 20amp turn signal fuse, "DIR SIG." There's a different fuse for the hazards. Check that.

Personally, I've had a lot of turn signal gremlins. If ANY bulb is dead or dying, things get weird. Little running lights in the tails, cornering bulbs, etc.

Fixed! Working like new! Took out the bad acting WAGNER 552 flasher (OE?) and used a bench grinder to carefully open it up. Cleaned the contacts with 320 sandpaper. Used some HD silicone adhesive sparingly to re-attach the cap to the base. Total cost= O. Total time= 20 minutes. Easy stuff.
Life is good in the Pacific North West!
