Removed Dash now a Series of Problems...

For some reason now my headlights, blinkers, hazards, and windshield wipers won't work..

where as i think the wind shield wiper may be defective there has to be a way in which the blinkers,hazards, and headlights are connected any ideas? any fuses that are a pain to find or relays or harness's i might have missed..?

A common link would be the multifunction switch connector on the steering column. Pull the panel under the column and check the connector.

All of those are tied into the multifunction switch. You most likely unplugged the connector going to the switch.

Pulled apart!

Look carefully at your terminals with a magnification lens- I was stunned to find little plastic retainers in many connectors can be bent,dried out, miss-aligned after a disturbance.. LooK CAREFULLY!!

You might wont to check the hazard button on the steering column if u hit it or cracked it when you took the dash out that could be it. from your symptoms that what it sounds like does the horn work if not i would start there right after you check to see you hooked everything back up lot of connections in the hazard button.turn signals horn blinkers headlight exe.
