66 mustang turn signals

Anyone know where to get a turn signal wiring harness for a 66 Mustang and quick? The wires on mine are fried. And the exhaust on my 01 broke and I need a car by Monday.

Unless you live by a Mustang parts house, and I assume you don't since your asking on here, I'd say you're out of luck. They couldn't get it shipped by Monday. Find a car show tomorrow and ask the mustang guys if anybody has a used one for sale. Be careful putting it in, that might be what happened to the first one. It's easy to nick the wires. You should say where you live in case anybody on here has one.

I tried a junkyard, but there not that many classics in junkyards, and the ones that are, are all gutted. Plus I don't like buying electronics at junkyards, it's too risky. I bought the harness from CJ Pony Parts for around 25 bucks. Hopefully it gets here soon.

Well I was thinking you could find something to work temporarily since you're in a pinch. You could run your own wire to get it working until you get the fitted parts.

I live with my parents so I use their cars whenever I need to go someplace far, but from my house to school isn't that bad so I just bike there. We all work in the same place too so it's no biggie. Thanks though I got the parts today I'm gonna install them when I get home from work

Okay, so I put in the new turn signal wiring harness and put all the cables where they were supposed to go. The turn signals still don't work. The one on the front passengers side turns on but doesn't blink, and them the rest don't even turn on. And I also found out that my reverse lights don't work as well. Could it be a blown fuse? Or maybe it needs new bulbs?

Double check the light bulbs. When one is burnt, the other will function weird. I'd also use some of that lubricant that eases contact between electrical connections. Ask them for for it at any auto parts store.

It's possible when that shorted, you may have blown a fuse and or a tail light. It should be isolated within that system.

When you have that much electrical damage, a fuse better blow! The fuses job is to prevent that. But check the fuse and bulbs as stated. Also double check and make sure you got the pins back in the right cavities in the connectors. Do you have flashers? Is that wiring good? Are you using a wiring diagram to guide you?

Okay here's what I got. My headlights work perfect. Tail lights, which are the brake lights and turn signals at the same time (am I right?), work well, When I press the brake they light up nice. And I just noticed that the reverse lights don't light up. Since I replaced the harness, all the normal lights work. The right front passenger blinker turns on but doesn't blink. The left one doesn't turn on at all, but in the instrument cluster the turn signal indicators turn on correctly and also don't blink. The tail lights don't blink either. I checked the fuses on the left hand side of the drivers side and some are blown and it's a little rusted in there. I might just replace the whole thing.

What are flashers exactly. I put the pins where they go exactly I'll double check that though. Yeah I have the wiring diagram for the whole system.

Just letting everyone know. I'm pretty sure I fixed my turn signals. For future reference, if anyone needs help. Here's what I did and what happened. The turn signals did not work at all.
First I replaced the turn signal and horn wiring harness. I bought it online for about 30 dollars. Now I tried that out and the only signal that worked was the right front passengers side. But it didn't flash. Neither did the indicator on the dash. Now I checked the bulbs and the front drivers side bulb was burned out. I replaced it and it lit but didn't flash still. I took a look at the wiring in the trunk. Some *** disconnected the turn signal cables and put the brake light cable on it. So I did some rewiring and viola. All the turn signals worked. But they don't flash. Now I took the flasher off and I'm going to buy and replace it. Thank you guys for your advice
