No power to the back of fuse panel for Blinker and blower fan
92' 5.0 LX, 103K miles, no blinkers or A/C - Heater fan. There is no power going to tha back of the fuse panel for those two paraleled fuses. I manualy powered that fuse and the blinkers worked but the fan didn't. I bought a Chilton book but it dosn't give a detailed wiring schematic. Is there another fuse between the battery, harness and fuse panel?

Re: No power to the back of fuse panel for Blinker and...
Both circuits are feed from the same wire GY/Y from the ignition switch.This ckt is feed by Yellow wire which feeds everything else like ignition,radio etc. So I would say that ckt is burnt out in your igntion switch itself(GY/Y).

If the dash signal is blinking fast and the back of car signal is NOT working, then the problem is the bulb in the back of the car. The one that is not blinking needs to be replaced. The bulb that's not blinking is burned out, and this changes the resistance of the blinker circuit causing the blinker to flash rapidly on the dash indicator. FIX: Replace the burned out bulb in the back of the vehicle.
Note - Sometimes this situation causes the blinker module on the fuse panel to permanently change to a rapid or even a non-blinking state. In this case you must also replace the blinker device itself, which is on the fuse panel and looks like a small cylinder (or cube) less than one inch in diameter.
Check the brake light fuse. Check that one of the brake light fuse terminals has power at all times. Power for the brake lights goes from the fuse panel to the brake light switch, before the brake light wire goes into the steering column.
The do not run off the same fuse but they do run off the same blinker. Try turning on the key, click the left/right (check both) turn signal and then operate the 4 ways on and off at the same time. Work the 4 way switch back and forth 10 to 25 times and see if you get any short winks or blinks from the system. Turn signals are usually on their own fuse in the glove box and hazard are on with the brake fuse. If this does not work, I would look at the blinker. It is possibly bad. Check each pin of the blinker and see if there is power there when you turn on the 4 ways or turn signals. Replace Blinker. Make calls to parts stores and dealer for location of this blinker.
No Turn Signal Operation (blinker)The turn signal lights in your car are a basic electrical system that controls the front and rear blinker lights to alert the intended direction of the vehicle. We have listed some of the most common problems and repair troubleshooting tips below: Troubleshooting Procedure To start troubleshooting this problem:
Turn the key to the on position (do not start engine)
Inspect the system fuse located in the fuse panel and replace if needed. If you cannot find the location of the blinker fuse consult your owner's manual or an online repair manual
When a blinker flasher fails it can cause blinker lights to say on, not blink, or not go on at all. To test the blinker system flasher, remove the flasher unit and insert a jumper wire between the two terminals. If blinker stays on in both directions without blinking, replace the flasher. If you cannot find the location of the blinker flasher consult your owners manual or an online repair manual.
This could be a problem with what he did if the wiring was not correct and he had to replace the head light or any of the wiring harness to make the car like new. There is a short somewhere. It could be that with the accident some wire got trapped in the metal and when they straightend the body they pinched the wire or something to do with the headlight. I would take it back to him and demand that he shows you exactly what he did. Body shops are known for having issues like this and not wanting to take blame fr a problem
