1999 Explorer - Directionals not working

(1999 Ford Explorer)
in Burlington, VT on August 10, 2009
My directionals don't work. The fuse is blown. I've replaced the fuse 3-4 times, but each time afterwards the directionals will only work a few times before blowing again. Anyone have any advice on how to determine what this is caused by? I know it could be several things, so I was hoping to narrow it down before spending too much time figuring it out. Trying to avoid taking it to the dealarship since it is probably something simple, but also likely to get me way way overcharged.

P.S. One possible cause I was told is the flasher relay could need to be replaced. I thought this is supposed to be located under the dash beneath the steering column, but I can't seem to find it... can anyone confirm or correct me on this?

Most likely the MULTIFUNCTION SWITCH(turn signal switch).

Buy on new switch.

How do I test the switch to determine if that's what it really is?
