Location for turn signal relay
It depends on the model of avenger you have, coupe or convertible. It can either be in the steering column with the multifuntcion switch(basically the turn signal lever and wiper control asembly) or it is in the center console behind the radio.

engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only
for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the
transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in
most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory
of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as
the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done
is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system
for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for
engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained
technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then
based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the
correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer
replaced (known as the PCM), which is very rarely the problem. Other
basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with
the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine.
The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear
engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related

1997 Dodge Avenger Missing Radiator relays
It is common for some relay positions to not be used on many cars. These are places for relays that control things that your vehicle is not equipped with. For example, if your vehicle is not equipped with fog lamps, the spot where the fog lamp relay would go will be empty and there will be no connectors in that spot either.
As for your overheating problem, it needs to be properly diagnosed. Most Dodge engines are VERY unforgiving when it comes to being overheated. Even if it was not caused by a blown head gasket, there is a really good chance that it has one now.
Combustion gasses in your cooling system can keep your fans from running, because the gasses push the water down and away from the Engine Coolant Temperature (ECT) sensor that tells the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) when to operate the fans.
Your Avenger is actually equipped with four different fan control relays. It is very unlikely that all of the relays would be bad (or missing).
Proper diagnosis required.
