I cannot find a flasher unit besides the one for the emergency flashers, which DO work. The only manual I could find has every Mitsubishi model but mine. It has my year but not my wiring diagram, so I cannot find if there is a second flasher unit, separate from the one for the emergency flashers, and, if so, where it is located. All of my bulbs are good.

NOTE: Emergency flashers and blinkers usually use a separate flasher unit, but one is close to the other. If your blinkers do not work but your emergency flashers do, find the emergency flasher unit by finding the source of clicking, then locate the blinker flasher nearby. They will ALWAYS be underneath the dashboard on the driver side.
Check your flasher units. Because of the load of all signals working under Emergency conditions, there are 2 flasher units. The basic flasher may be bad and that is why the Emergency flasher still works.
Also try cycling the Emergency flashers about 20 times. Some designs share contacts between the 2 units and the prongs get misplaced which the Emergencies are used.
find your owners manual, use it to find your fuse panel, read the legend and locate the turn signal flasher and the emergency flasher, exchange them as they are identical. make a mental note to drop by a car parts store and pick up a replacement some day. when you get the replacement, put it in the signal flasher socket and put the old one back into the emergency flasher socket.
Try the flasher unit first, checking it costs nothing. Turn on your emergency flashers and if they work, get your owners manual and find the fuse panel locations. Inside the manual or the panel cover there will be a legend as to what is what. You will have two flasher units, one for turn signals and the other emergency flashers. They are the same units so just switch them, if your turn signals now work, but your flashers don't, then you have a bad flasher unit. Go buy another at any auto parts store and put it in the correct socket, you rarely use the emergency flashers so you want your new one in the turn signal circuit.
If that does not do it then you may have a broken switch which requires pulling the steering wheel off to fix. That is not an owner service thing. One bad light bulb is not going to knock them all out.
replace flasher unit.
The turn signal and hazard flasher unit is located in the interior fuse panel located under the driver's left side knee protector. They are replaced by simply pulling them straight out. Note that the prongs are arranged in such a way that the flasher must be properly oriented before attempting to install it. Turn the flasher until the orientation of the prongs is correct and simply push it firmly in until the prongs are fully engaged.
Please check to make sure that it isn't your flasher fuse. You may have the ability to exchange it with your emergency flasher unit. Turn on your emergency flasher to locate where this unit is installed under your dash. Make sure that the e-flasher unit and turn signal unit can be interchanged. If you are confident that they can be switched, go ahead and see if that solves your problem.
