I just picked up a 99 adventurer and I have one problem.
The indicators, fan motor and emerg. flashers don't work.
The 15 amp fuse is good. I have voltage coming in and out of the fuse block (blue/black wire).
I don't have a manual yet so no wiring diagram.
I was "told" by someone that it could be a relay.
That makes a little sense if it is a control relay to take some load off of the ignition switch.
At this point I wouldn't even know where this relay would be if there was one.
Thanx for any help fellas!

Thanx Jim,
I had a feeling I'd here something from you on this.
I'll let you know what I find.

Fan motor does run properly (when hot).
What bothers me now is that it was mentioned that the battery box door is where I might look for the flasher relay.
There is what looks like a sheet metal mount where it might have been but no opened wire harness to indicate that it was removed. Another symptom of note is that the indicator lights don't come on and don't flash, they don't come on at all.
This bike had saddle bags when I got it. They didn't work before I removed them nor do they now.
Someone had made extensions for the lights to extend them for the saddle bags.
There are two jacketed pairs of wires going out to the tail indicators. One pair is blackand yellow/white and one is black and yellow/brown. Telling me that the black and yellow is a ground. They don't work in the park position either.
Any help on where the flasher relay is located and I'm all ears.
I do think that it's still possible that it may be in the ignition switch since I would think that if the contacts are stuck it probably would be stuck regardless of park or run position.
Am I correct on that?
Also is the emergency flasher on the same circuit meaning that the bike has to be in the park or run position?
Anyone who knows definitively where the flasher relay is: I'm all ears. (lookee there, I said that twice)

Well there was this 1 connector under the seat (3 wire) that had nothing plugged into it and sure enough it was supposed to have a flasher relay plugged into it.
In Texas some people call them "blinker dinkers" pronounced: "blanker dankers".
Hey guys, thanx for keepin' me focused! Problem solved!

Now I have to go get a "blanker danker" for my old El Camino!
