    1996 Tacoma, I did a radio install (blew 1 fuse to dome light) but after, my signals don't work:

    - My hazards work (the arrows light up as well)
    - Checked fuses both place inside the car and under hood
    - I've switch the other relays and found no change.
    - replaced flasher (part #ep 35 from autozone).
    - bought a used junk yard turn signal switch
    - i've also pulled my radio to look for exposed wires, looked fine from what i could tell.

    Any Suggestions or ideas?

    I had this posted in the "Lighting" but wasn't getting much luck, was hoping to get any suggestions in this section.

    My only guess is maybe some wires behind the radio maybe is shorting?

    Thanks!

    I was just looking at a wiring diagram for your truck and there is a junction box of some sort with green/white wires going in/out of it that is located in the center of the dash (possibly by the radio you installed). Maybe try finding those to see if maybe you pinched them or cut them?

    I tried uploading the picture on here but it's too fuzzy.

    I'm guessing on this. But junction box 3 is what I'm leaning towards.

    lol.

    It's probably the muffler bearings.

    He might have a clog in his fallopian tubing.

    +1. But it's weird that you blew your overhead lamp fuse. :confused: Something's gone wrong. Did you disconnect the negative battery terminal while you were working on the electrical system? :eek: ALWAYS DO THAT!

    Did you cut any wires? Which ones? I'm EXTREMELY UPTIGHT whenever cutting or crimping into any factory wires. Did you maybe cut/splice/tap-into into the wrong wires?

    Open it back up.

    Look for loose connections, esp. at that junction box 3.

    Check and recheck that you only tapped into the right wires.

    After that, you're in for the "long session" of tracing and testing with schematic and multi-meter in hand.

    Good luck. I'm afraid you're going to need it.
