I am building a Frenkenstein and using a bunch of parts from various years. Trying to figure out my signal lights not working. All of the schematics I see show 2 flashers side by side in the fuse block, one for the Hazard 4 way and the other for the Signal lights. The bulkhead fuseblock I have has provision for only the Hazard which is the left side of the block. There is a space for the Turn Signal flasher, and the block is marked TS Flasher, but there are no wires behind the block for a flasher to plug into. I do not know the year of the harness but is it mid 80's I assume. I am guessing that on this harness the Turn signal flasher plugs in elsewhere on the harness?

I know the 84 harness has a plug hanging down from the harness right above the parking brake.
I'll see if I can find a picture

Something like this:

Look for a plug with red and yellow wires attached.
The smaller black and red were for a turn signal buzzer I installed.

Another discovery. The aftermarket front parking lamps sold on Ebay are wired backward. There is a red wire and a black wire, one for parking and the other for signal. The ones I have are wired in reverse so I had to cut and reconnect them.
Yes, there must be thousands of those out in the wild that were manufactured wrong.

You could of just push the terminals out and put them in the right location.
I bought a motorcycle turn signal buzzer a couple years ago from Amazon:,aps,179&sr=8-7
Worked so well that it became annoying sitting at traffic lights listening to the alarm signal that sounded like a dump truck backing up. I took it off after a few months but it trained me to keep an eye on the turn signal indicators to make sure I hadn't left one on. I'm back to the original turn signal relay now.
That's why mine is disconnected now also.
