SOURCE: 96 ford tarus turn signal
The turn signals and the emergency flasher are controled by a single electronic flasher unit. It looks like an electronic relay and is located on the far left underside of the dash. It is on a mounting bracket and has a three wire connector. If you do not hear this clicking when you use the turn signals or the emergency flasher it may be bad. Just remove the connector and remove the one screw holding the flasher to the bracket. Be sure the replacement is identical to the old one and compare them before installing the new one.
You may want to also check the turn signal bulbs also. Other causes would be bad signal and flasher switches, bad bulb connectors, and opens or shorts in the wiring.

Conrad, up north.
My protege is a '99. The turn signals and hazard flashers use the same flasher unit. It is located under the dash to the left of the steering wheel and above and a bit to the right right of the driver's side fuse box.

The flasher unit has gone bad and needs to be changed. The flasher module is a part of the hazard module also. The clicking is the unit is still working but there is not enough voltage to activate the lights to flash. It's common on the Malibu's and other GM product cars similar to the Malibu like Grand Am's Ect. I believe Auto Zone has the replacement part for you car and is more reasonable in price then the dealer and the y also have the step by step instructions to replace the flasher module. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to help.

I had the same problem and the flasher is not located in the fuse box because it is not a normal flasher. the cougar has an electronic flasher unit that is located on the left side of the center console. the best and cheapest place to order a new one is amazon.com. they run about $30-$40
