My kids 1992 dodge spirit has a turn signal problem. I went to check the flasher module since the fuse and bulbs were ok (no clicking sound when turning the blinkers on either). I found the emergency flasher module, but cannot find the turn signal one. The manual said its rigth next to the AC vent, but that is packed in pretty tight. I could not see one.

Re: dodge spirit flasher location
You remove a few phillips head screws on the cover beneath the dash under the knee panel. The hood release is attached to the panel. You can reach it from below or remove the knee panel around the fuse box door. Look for the screws around the trim piece. It's a fairly simple process. It's a small, silver, and looks like a little can. I hope this helps. Don't forget to rate my answer, thanks.

Under the dashboard should be a fuse panel and some turn signal flashers. All of these are likely under the dash near the driver's knees. Check the fuses first. (Probably not that), then try the turn signal flasher. If your 4-way flasher is working, turn it on and take a flashlight and look up under the dash. This will not be easy. If you can locate the 4-way flasher by the clicking sound it is making, the turn signal flasher should be really near it. They are often side-by-side. If you will take it out, I hope a new one will fix it. Be blessed.
When its blinking fast look at both front and rear to verify which bulb isnt flashing. If the right works OK, then the flasher is OK. The flasher is INSIDE the front control module/integrated power module. If you cant find the problem, you may need a dealer to check it.
If you can locate the hazrd flasher unit under the dash on the drivers side, the turn flasher unit should be right beside it and looks the same. Unplug and switch the 2 flashers and see if the turn signals work. The flasher unit is a silver and round. they are usually close to the stering colum. Let me know if that helps.
Did you actually check the bulbs? I believe your brake lights, signal lights, hazards all use the same bulb for each side.
Your brake lights may be your brake switch just above your brake pedal. The signals could be your electronic flasher module (EFM) located under the dash near the steering column. Your hazards may be affected by the EFM, but not likely and the switch for your hazards may be faulty
Did all these problems happen all at one time?? If so you may have a bad body ground. Try running a electrical wire from the (-) negative side of the battery to the body and see if this works. Be sure this wire is to a place with no paint as low voltage electricity will not flow through paint.
A). If not try replacing the turn signal flasher for the turn signal problem. This is usually the culprit and it's easiest and cheapest to replace. The turn signal flasher will be found under the driver side dash next to the hazard flasher. Turn the hazard flasher one to locate it. If you want try swapping the turn signal flasher with the hazard flasher to see if this fixes it. They are the same style flasher.
If this doesn't work you may a faulty turn signal switch or some wiring issues.
B). It could as simple as the head lights bulbs need to be replaced, it's rare but I have seen when both bulbs blew at or near the same time. If your able check the voltage at the head sockets.
C). Could be a bad blower motor or switch. I'm not sure if these models have a resistor block or not. The resister block controls the electrical current going to blower motor which controls the speed of the blower fan.
The dash light usually does that when one or more bulbs are out, just as a kind of heads-up to you I guess. I'd try a couple of new bulbs, or at least remove & inspect them for dirt & corrosion. Left side, (driver side) is the side that ets all the extra spray of dirt and grime from passing cars.
