Turn Signal and Headlights stopped working

Hello! I have a 2007 Versa that I replaced the clock spring on today to fix the horn. I followed someones post from here (which was spot on) and the horn works great. However, now the turn signals and headlights do not work. They worked fine yesterday. I tried the hazard blinkers and they work so I know it is not a bulb issue. I tried taking everything apart again and hooking up the old clock spring assembly to see if there was something faulty in the new assembly I bought and now the headlights and turn signals didn't work with that one either. Is there a fuse that I may have blown? Did I damage the headlight/signal assembly? Luckily, its not our main car but the one I drive to and from work and since its summer, I am home before dark but I would like to fix this soon. ANyone have any ideas? Thanks.

Its a good idea to check the fuses no matter what, thats always a good starting point. I'm not really sure what else it could be, its not like the turn signal wires are part of the clockspring wiring that you replaced. I'm not sure how you could have blown a fuse though because you did have the battery disconnected when you did the work, right? There are a lot of live wires around the steering column and ignition area so no work should be done there with the battery connected, not to mention you may anger the airbag gods...

Were you required to remove the turn signal switches to change the clockspring? Maybe the connector just didn't get seated well enough?

I did have the battery disconnected, which is why I was wondering about the fuses. You have to take the turn signal off the get the spring off. Maybe it isn't seated properly, I'll check again. I was wondering if I damaged something in the connector on the turn signal itself. When I undid everything and hooked the old clock spring back up and the lights and turn signal didn't work, I figured it was the handle piece itself.

Well I went home last night and took everything made sure everything was tight and out it back together and the turn signals and headlights work now. INow I just have a clicking noise when I turn, but I think that might be the clock spring unit was not aligned so I'll check that again! Thanks for your help.
