Question about 1998 Mitsubishi Galant
Hi, replace the flasher. It's below the instrument panel, left of the steering column. Looks like the picture below.

Found a mitchells manual for foreign cars 1997 (Electrical) looked up the wiring diagram for this Model and it showed the flasher unit, just one and its for both, directionals and flashers. The 2 other look alike flasher units near fuse panel are relays for the defroster and fan ! The flasher for hazard/directionals is not near the fuse panel nor the steering column. Its under IP drivers side above the hood release cable. Flasher unit is good, fuse is good, apparently turn signal/lights swith attached to steering column is the problem !

Turn signals don't use a fuse, they use a flasher unit that turns them on and off. First I am going to assume that you have checked your bulbs front and rear. Next turn on your hazard lights to see if they work. If they do go ahead and leave them on. Most cars have two flasher units, one for turn signals, the other for the hazard lights. The nice thing is that they normally use the same ones and can be swapped. Using the sound of the hazards turning off and on, you should be able to find and see both units, or at least they will be very close to each other. Now just reverse them and hpefully you now have turn sigs.

Testimonial: "Very Helpful -took it to a mechanic and he did exactly as you suggested and then told me it was a switch in the steering column and it will cost $325."
