Turn signals stopped working on my 94, hazzards work

My truck was down for a couple days due to a power wire intermittently shorting to the back of my block blowing my EEC fuse and leaving me stranded on the interstate :)

I tore apart the wiring harness under the hood(carefully and properly, but had it all apart nonetheless) and got it running again.

I noticed a couple lovely things the previous owner left me with:

1. the alternator charge wire was joined to the fusible link with a WIRE NUT and was all corroded. I cut it, and soldered on a new end going to the distribution block.

2. there was always this random and CLEARLY aftermarket wire grounded by my battery that went down into the grill area(figured it was for fogs, horn, etc, as it was a work truck)

I decided to follow it while I had the truck apart, and it went across to the passenger side, and met up with another wire that was tapped into a brown wire going to my PS headlight. I took it all out, soldered the wire back together that it was tapped into, and went on with finding my short.

Now that my truck runs, I noticed my turn signals don't work. I haven't had a chance to look into it yet, as I just repaired it then came to work.

Do you think this is related? or could it be a fuse(I was all over the fuse panels while fixing it)

My hazzards work, but the turn signals do not.

I won't have much daylight to work on it when I get home so I'm just hoping someone has maybe had the same problem and can steer me in the right direction so I can fix it quickly.


Thanks!
Toby

Your hazards and your turn signals are both on different flashers. My guess is you burned out a flasher.

awesome thanks for the info. I was pulling them while testing under the dash, so I'll look their first. I'm guessing they're in the fuse panel under the steering wheel??

I thought so, too. But I did a leakdown test on the blinker system and it's holding pressure well. Although my blinker-BOV has been louder than normal recently....
