Turn Signal no flashy

Ok I attempted to do the blinker mod. Blew a 15 amp fuse, replaced it and still no blinks. Checked all the fuses, looked good. Is wired back to stock. Unable to locate the flasher module thing. Should I go back and test the fuses with a ohm meter? Is there any way to test the flasher module once i locate it?

did you blow out the bulbs? if not take a volt meter to the hot wire and see if you have any juice going to it. i did mine no problem in 10 minutes. it took longer to put the damn headlights back in then it did to do it. if you have any questions send me an im on aim.

I sure feel kinda stupid right now. When the fuse blew I put it in 25 instead of 21.

Forgot to mention the blinker fluid is good for another 5k. In my search I came up with natual and synthetic, with clear, orange, and black color. Which is the best to use?

Orange.

The color of the fluid helps with resisting thermal breakdown, letting you be able to go longer between fill-ups.

So then what's clear and black for? I was gonna get the black stuff since it was priced better.

The black stuff is just the AutoZone flashy flashy stuff, its junk. The white stuff is the basic, no additives or anything in it junk, meaning you have to fill it up more frequently.
