Weird Electrical Problem

Today, all of a sudden, my turn signals, horn and windshield wipers would no longer work, AT ALL. I checked all the fuses, and they were all intact. Now I'm stumped.
Everything worked fine minutes earlier.
Any clues on this one?

Did you check them with a 12v test light or did you do a visiual, because sometimes the fuse can be open on the end of the fuse housing.........& could be hard too see!

my 2 cents worth...

follow the cluster of wires that run down the steering column.... one of the connectors may have come loose ;-)

then.. asdie from just checking fuses... check whether there is actual 12volts at each terminal of the fuse. if none, then trace ur electricity upstream

Good luck to u
