    I have mounted my fuse block and routed most of my wires. I am testing the headlights, turn signals front and rear and side lights. I am getting power to all the lights, but I am unable to to get the signals to flash. I compared my wires from the turn signal switch with my service manual. The colors are not the same so I took the switch off the column and tried to identify which wire corresponded to each turnsignal section, wire to brake switch, etc. This has been a common problem in wiring the switches. It is hard to figure which wire is which. Any pointers, pictures, or diagrams would be appreciated.

    I have the pdf diagram as well as the hayes manual, but I was looking for more info on the switch wiring.

    Secondly do I still need o run the wires as the diagram has it as far as connecting the side light to the turn signal and then to headlights?

    Help?!? Thanks

    ANY PICS from any part of your painless installation would be appreciated

    Did you check to ensure your flashers were connected and working correctly?
