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.

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.
since you know where the fuses are, you also know where the flashers are. the flashers are the same part so unplug the one for the emergency flasher and put it into the socket for the turn signals and vice versa. if the signals now work but not the emergency flasher you know to get a new flasher unit at any parts store. the flasher units are cubes about an inch on each side plugged into the fuse panel.
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.
This vehicle should have 2 flasher relays one that operates the emergency flashers and one operating the turn signals.Easiest way to locate these would be to turn the emergency flashers on and listen to where the clicking is coming from usually the flasher are pretty close to each other.Once you find the flasher unit you can swap the flasher unit that is working with the one that is not and if the turn signals work after that you will need to purchase another flasher relay.
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.
