Electrical problem 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 107000 miles

The turn signals (both front and rear) do not work. I can not find the fuse in the fuse panel in the engine compartment or I can not find the turn signal relay location, if it has one. I have resonanable electrical skills, but do not know where to start on this problem. Would you please give me some ideas as to where to start on this problem.
PS: I have checked the light bulbs and they are ok.

Your vehicle uses the totally integrated power module (TIPM) to control the signals and hazard lamps. the TIPM is located on the left side of the engine compartment, picture is below.

Here are some better diagrams for the blinker wiring diagrams so you can see how the system works and TIPM so you can check the fuses #3, 17, 33 and 5.

Check out the diagrams (Below)

Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

Same problem, all the aforementioned fuses are good. I am thinking at this point it is the TIPM. Other possibilities?

Second question: found the picture wire stemming off of one of the wire clusters. I cannot find a receptacle for it. What is that for?

Yes, the TIPM is what fixes this problem, if you get a new one they are plug and play you do not need to initialize them.

REMOVAL

The TIPM (TIPM) is serviced as a unit with the engine compartment wire harness. If any internal circuit of the TIPM or the TIPM housing is faulty or damaged, the entire TIPM and engine compartment wire harness unit must be replaced. Refer to Wiring Diagrams for the locations of the affected connectors.

1. Open hood.

2. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.

3. Disconnect each of the engine compartment wire harness connectors.

4. Remove the fasteners that secure each of the engine compartment wire harness ground eyelets to the vehicle body and chassis components.

5. Disengage each of the retainers that secure the engine compartment wire harness to the vehicle body and chassis components.

The Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) is serviced as a unit with the engine compartment wire harness. If any internal circuit of the TIPM or the TIPM housing is faulty or damaged, the entire TIPM and engine compartment wire harness unit must be replaced.

NOTE: If the Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) is being replaced with a new unit, be certain to transfer each of the fuses and relays from the old TIPM to the proper cavities of the new TIPM. Refer to Wiring Diagrams for the proper TIPM cavity assignments.

The sensor looks like an air temperature sensor which plugs into the air box or air intake tube (look under for a hole).

Check out the diagrams (below). Please let us know what happens.

Cheers, Ken
