Headlights and indicaters

Please help!

So I took of the the wings and did not take a pic of the wiring. I did get it all hooked back up according to the wiring diagram in the manual. However, the headlights still do not work and when I turn the head lights on the flashers will not work.

I am sure I am missing something simple.
Thanks,

So i got the headlights and turn signals to work. But now they will not work at the same time.
When the headlights are on the turn signals do not work?
Any ideas?

Registry
you have a floating ground, meaning they are each other thru the circuit and not to metal as they should, im sure the hdlts ar dimm as well and when the blinkers are on all others seem to get a little brighter/ dimmer, it is called ocillation due to a floating/ non existant ground....

Thanks Carlos,
You are exactly right. I am tracking down the grounds now. this seems like a needle in the haystack.

Thanks again!
