I have a friend with a '99 Dodge Grand Caravan with inoperable turn signals. Where to look first:

Okay, so 20 questions later I find out that the real problem is that the turn signals don't work on her minivan. When she would indicate to turn it would flash once or twice and then go out. It was like that for a while (I dunno a week or so, maybe) and now it doesn't even flash once.
So I figure it's not a fuse (but I will check them first anyway) and is probably the flasher relay/module/blackbox/thingy. I phoned a couple of parts places and they don't have them and suggested calling the dealer. Found one place that had one in stock but it's not close to me - $36 part number LM 468. Googled that and found this
Sounds like the right part. But let's phone the dealer and ask for parts...
The guy says I should replace the daytime running light module for a cool $97 and btw if it's not that then I can't return electrical parts and I should probably just bring it in for service. And where is it in the vehicle? Oh probably under the dash, it would be a black box about the size of a pack of cards, maybe near the steering column.
Now I'm not sure if the LM 468 is the right part.
So, does anyone know how Dodge Grand Caravan turn signals work? Or what part I need? I'd like to fix it myself, but I don't want to buy the wrong part(s) and waste her money.
