    LOL no problemo brochacho.

    The guy up a pole is in India, where there is no electrical code so to speak.

    The pink and black and the orange and black wires go to a factory installed rear defroster grid relay. It was installed on Canadian sold camaros. The black wire goes to a small condenser/capacitor I'm not really sure. I removed it.
    The flasher module there is for the 4-ways. I can't remember what the blue white and green wires from underneath are for.
    The brown wires dangling there are for speakers.
    If you have any questions about 79 wiring feel free to ask or search.. I've been through the whole shebang and so have a few others!

    OK I'm under my 79s dash and near the box is a square relay with a green, red(both large guage and a black wire I think is maybe the horn relay from the diagram. Then attached nearby on the metal dash frame is a circular plastic thing(looks like a flasher) with pink/white wires and purple wire. What is it?

    My 79 fuse box is alot uglier than that.

    Yep looks like that-I've just always seen them on the fuse box itself like at the top of his picture.

    Well that's the thing - the one on the box is for the 4-ways. The one on the metal frame under the dash is for the turn signals.

    I had to troubleshoot it many moons ago. Changed the 4 way relay 3 times until I figured it out!
    The turn signal flasher was the original from '79, it was light blue plastic and everything.
    Replaced it with an electronic type.
