Today i was wiring in a new HU and 6x9's

Something sparked when a live wire touched the HU casing

Since then the hazards and the indicators dont work at all

all the fuses are fine

You've probably killed the hazard switch which contains the indicator relay.

Want a good suggestion?

You can't get an electric shock from 12 volts,it's just advice taken from many years of experience.
