electrical questions

Postby markmitch [OP] » April 20th 2017, 2:11am

my van has been off the road a while so when I got it running earlier this month I checked the lights and such and first I had no park or directional lights long story short I had a fuse blown so I replaced it then all park lights and directional work except the right front I traced it down to a single wire that runs from the firewall out to the park/directional assembly I cut that wire quite a ways back and I am getting no electricity at all. Any ideas where I should check next? My schematics do not show beyond that for some reason.

I had replaced the steering column and one wire came out of the harness just a little and when I pushed it back in it was good
