Spaghetti for dinner

Iíve got a drain on my battery, and almost all this mess is for the disabled flashers. Do folks just cut all this crap out, trying to leave wipers and other needed bits intact?
Thereís not a lot of labels, and Iíve pulled tons of wire already.

Wish I could help, but your post (which is unfortunately a very common one, I might add) is the functional equivalent of posting a picture of a stack of hay, & asking one of us to guess where the needle is.


Personally speaking - no - I wouldn't cut anything out unless I knew exactly what the circuit powered, how it was wired, & what if any interrelationships existed between it & other components in the system. And then, if I did cut it out, it wouldn't be cutting. It would be properly removing (as in pins from connectors) items to maintain a clean, intuitive, trouble-free installation.

Yeah, pretty much this. If you just go cutting and yanking wires, you'll be posting a "Bus Won't Start" thread in a matter of days.
