Most Yamaha turn signals are supposed to spring back to center and stay flashing till you press in on the swiitch
Some models also have self cancelling signals that shuf off after the bike travels so many feet.

Possibly your switch is simply gummed up.....key off, spray some WD40 into switch and work it left to right back and forth and press it in and out....if its now moving freely, try the key again and see if its better.

Wiper wiring diagram

Those are accessory functions working off the ignition switch when in accessory position or run position of the key. Were you to check if the wiper and radio fuse had power to them in the run or accessory position as they should, likely they would not. Power from the switch goes to the fuse panel, powering the fuses and circuits that only work with key in on or acc., either a direct wire to the fuse panel or sometimes, fuses get power from an accessory relay that sends power to fuses, but relay has to get a signal from a good working switch before it powers the fuses.
What I'm trying to say, is the bad switch is probably the reason you have no wipers, radio, or mirrors.

1997 Ford E350 clearance lights don't work

First check the fuse, the clearance lights are not factory in most cases and the wiring gets shorted from poor wiring. Once you replace the fuse see if the lights come on, if the fuse blows right away find the wiring to the clearance lights and disconnect them, if the short goes away it is a I said the wiring is shorted. If you don't have the owner's manual you should be able to download it at the link provided. It should be fuse #10 a 20 AMP in the interior fuse box.

If both ways cause it, I would say check them steering both. The problem is in the wiring harness though. You probably can see melted wires.

No left hand turn signal or brake lights

if you have checked the fuses and the flasher then what is a common fault on these is the turn signal switch itself. Sometimes wiggling it and movings back and forth will get it to work which would definetaly means its failing.

Typically, your symptoms are caused by a poor ground connection. These connections, once corroded give the hit and miss service you are describing. If you are into self-repairs, trace the ground wires back to where they are bolted to the frame. Remove each ground wire, scrub it up along with that spot on the frame, give it a squirt of electrical contact spray and reconnect it. J.

I have a 1988 chevy beretta and my turn signals and brake lights are not working i checked all the fuses and they all seem to be good. what could be the problem?

But make sure the hazard switch (4 ways) is completely OFF Have you been having any lighting problems for a while that you have been neglecting?
Contact me if you still Have any questions If you have a tilt wheel try moving it to another position sometimes the wires get worn because they FLEX a lot if someone always uses the tilt you can have a broke wire, the brake lights circuit runs THROUGH the turn signal switch inside the steering column.
