Clever yes???????

So my brake lights stay on all the time, turn signals work.  I changed out the brake light switch.,  New battery.  Could it be a hazard lights flasher can?

I am looking for an 84 wire diagram.  

It's an 84.  I wasn't expecting to see Bubbas wire service, it has a Ford motor relay on the left side with a wire jammed between the lug pin and the socket.   Still eyeballing this contraption

Last one..... What is the relay also on the left side (driver) but closer to the firewall do

I won the car last December for 300.00(60 tickets) and brought it home 2 weeks ago.  Runs like a beast.

Dennis...check your e-mail. I'm sending you the complete OE wiring diagram. It is 4 parts. Files are large, and I do not know if they will all go onto one email, but Imma gunna try!

Did your brake lights go off when you removed the brake light switch?   There are two switches on the brake pedal.   Could you have replaced the one for the cruise control?
 
 What is the relay also on the left side (driver) but closer to the firewall?
 
If you're talking about the relays in the engine compartment, the relay on the fender well, under the master cylinder, is for the radiator fan.   The one on the firewall, near the brake booster, is for the fuel pump.

I will have a little time this weekend to do more checking.  When I pulled the brake switch the lights stay on, manually activating the switch made no difference.  Pics are coming.
