You are on the right track. But to be certain you should go to the actual light socket on one of the running lights that isn't working. Remove the socket assembly and remove the bulb. Check to see if its clean and free of corrosion and rust..
Use a "test light probe" like this.
link to test light pic and general use instructions
When you have the light bulb out you can do the test either with the connections inside the socket or you can use the probe on the back side of the socket.
First you want to check to see if you have power going to the light to start with.
1. connect the ground connection to something you are certain is attached to the frame, and has no paint. Screws, bolts or bare metal are all good. Then with the parking lights on check all of the posts in the socket you should get a light on one of them.
If you don't double check your ground on your test light and try a couple different places and a different power source. You want to KNOW you have a good ground first
If you do get a light on the test light, remember which socket you got power from. If there is only one other socket it will be ground.
Some cars have a dual power source for parking, brake, signals etc.
Next you can check the ground by putting the test light connection in the socket you are sure has power. and the probe in the other socket. you should have light on your test handle. If you don't leave the connector where it is and stick the probe on something metal to see if that works. If it does then you do have a problem with the ground.
BTW having a bad ground is not very common.

there is a fuse/relay panel underhood, also another underdash. check fuses with a testlight if possible. make sure the reostat( little wheel beside the light switch) is in the proper position. The dashlights are a seperate issue from the turn signals, unless it's an underdash wiring issue. check the fuses and reostat and let me know what you find.

replace the turn signal switch it self, mine did the same thing with the left turn signal, put in fuse and it will continue to flash... went to junk yard pulled one out of a 97 avenger just like mine, swapped them out and now it works fine. looked to be like some corrosion... to repace: 3 screws under columb, 2 screws on side of signal switch (black plastic side). unplug and replace

Before going ahead and spending money on a new module, test it first. The module is located under the steering column. You'll find a Brown wire on one of the connectors (i just looked at a wire diagram). Do no disconnect anything. Back probe the brown wire, which is the power feed to your park lights. With the lights off, there should be 0 volts on you voltmeter. Turn the park lamps on, There should be 12V. If there is not 12V, disconnect the connector and try to check voltage at the pin that feeds to the brown wire, if still not 12V, replace the module. If you do get 12V, then module is ok, find where the 12v is being dropped before making it to the lamps.
