Red face All I did was drop my key....

One evening, late at night, I dropped my key down into a little groove next to the center console of my 1979 300 TD wagon. While fishing it out, I must have dislodged the wire that goes to the hazards and turn signals, because they no longer work. I checked all the fuses today, and they're fine. Which is kinda a moot point, because I also opened up the center console and found the black wire that is no longer attached to anything. It seems to run from the front of the car and into the center console through the top of the console, which is how I pulled it out.

Can someone tell me where this wire should go? I'd like to fix it myself, rather than pay someone to do something I doubt would take me only a few minutes if I just knew where to put it.

I'd really like to have my turn signals back.

Thanks so much for your help!!!!!

Sounds like you may have hit the hazard button itself when you were digging. Sometimes on these cars if the button is pushed in half way it will cut the voltage from the turn signal stock. Try messing with the switch with the car running and turn signal switch on. If that does nothing I would test for voltage at the back of the switch... Let me know if that helps!
