Do you have fire to any of the blinkers,meaning when you turn the blinker on does it come on and not blink or don

I think your issue is in the wiring harness going to your blinker switch,there is one power wire that supply,s the power to the switch,you need to check it for fire,that will be your issue,the power wire running it is not getting juice.

Some basic wire tracing with a volt meter is due I think. Check every single connection and look for a good ground and power.

I agree, that leaves the power supply to switch or the multi-function stalk it's self

I just check the wiring diagram to the switch,there are two power wires,one for head lights,the other for blinkers.

The one for the head lights is hot all ways,the one for blinker is controled by the igntion switch.

Beside the relay and the switch, did you check the fuse itself on that circuit and the flasher?
