WB Holden ute

Greetings all, I have an 81 WB that is mocked up to look like a Sandman ute. Within 10 minutes of driving the car home the indicators stopped working. Thought it was the sloppy indicator stalk, bought a new one , nope, not that. Checked flasher cans (hazard and indicator) both working fine, fuse ok.
Having a fiddle today, hazard lights working, wiper dwell clicking on and off( go figure-wiper on the stalk is off) , indicators working only if the hazards are on . Blow indicator fuse.Fiddle under dash, wiper dwell relay not coming on now but indicators come on only with the hazards on again but WITHOUT a fuse in place.
Is the indicator switch in the steering column shorting out?
Lots of other electrical gremlins, sorting them out one a time.

any suggestions?

Is the new stalk a WB one? HZ didn't have hazard lights (been a while since I had one), are the stalks the same through HZ, WB, Commonbores etc? Like I said, just a thought..

My ( albiet limited) understanding is that the stalk with the wiper on the end is the same from HX thru to VK( and UC). The indicator switch within the honeypot changes with the WB because of the hazard switch to the side of the column.( Ive checked the plug end to the indicators and it matches the plug under the dash.
I think whoever changed the dash over only had limited skills as the headlight relay is burnt out,and the wipers dont work either, though as mentioned the dwell relay still works.
I appreciate your input though, will probably have to put it in the hands of a sparky to get it sorted.

Good luck. Sounds simple, but knowing Murphy's Law, maybe not so simple. Let's know how you go.
