If you move your turn signal lever and none of the indicators come on then the "usual suspect" is the flasher. Pull the plug at the flasher and probe for voltage. One pole should have battery voltage; the other, none. If you DON'T have voltage on either, start tracing t he wire back to the fuse block. Rarely is it the fuse, and when it is, a bunch of other crap doesn't work, either.

The fuse block is clean and it is a lil hard to trace it down due to how mangled the harnass is my main confusion is why i sparked and killed everything

Have you removed the horn, the steering wheel, and checked the wiring?

Have you unplugged the flasher and checked for power at the plug?

What does it mean when you turn the turn signal on and the turn signal on the dash just stays lit until you turn the turn signal off? It just stays lit, doesn't flash.

1966 Mustang 2-Door Coupe
Engine: 1980 302 bored 0.060, so 311 ci. 351 heads, Holley 670 cfm 4 barrel, Eldebrock Torker II 289 intake, Competition Cam 276 duration 490 lift.
Trans: 1966 C4, recently rebuilt
Rear End: 8.8" rear end, 3.73 ratio w/ tractionlok, sourced from 91-94 explorer
Brakes: disc in front, drum in rear. Manual all around, single reservoir
Non-numbers matching

My plan is just to build a decently powerful muscle car that looks good but is a driver not a show car.
