91 Thunderbird turn signals

My 16 year old just bought a 91 T-bird 3.8L for $700, We are in the process of changing all the fluids and filters and fixing everything we can find wrong. My main question is about the turn signals, they don’t work. The E-flasher works and all 4 lights flash with it but the regular turn signal handle on the steering column doesn’t do anything. Anyone got any ideas where to start or what is the likely culprit?
Any other advice on this vehicle?

I think I figured it out, I found a fairly large black plastic module that was clicking with the flashers on. When I removed it from its mounting the blinkers started working. Apparently there is a bad connection at or in it. The thing that threw me off was the flasher the parts store gave me was small and round. Anyways, I think I got the blinker thing figured out. I’m still open to any other advice about this car.
