First verify that the switch is energizing the relay in both positions by turning the low beams on and then pulling up the relay--does it click? If not, replace the switch. If yes, next check for power on the red wire as it comes out of the column. Switch on, no power--replace the switch. If power, check for power at the head-low fuse in the engine compartment fuse box. No power--find break in wire. If power, check for power on the yellow/red wire as it comes out of the fuse box. No power--repair fuse box. Power--check for power at lamps--same wire. No power--repair yellow/red wire.

Pull the door panel and find the cause, it can be a faulty lock motor or the linkage rod has come off due to a broken retainer clip.

You likely need a new flasher control module, it is located under the dash near the steering column. It looks like a large relay with three blade connector.

Remove all the belts on the pulley. Remove the center retaining bolt which typically needs to keep the engine from turning to get it off unless you use an impact wrench. Then you need a puller to push against the end of the crank shaft and pull the pulley off.

There are typically two plugs on the side of the transmission one is the fill and the lower one it the drain. Fill until the top hole begins to leak oil as the oil level is to the max position.

Did you check to see if the motor is receiving power? If not, why not?

If motor windings are definitely receiving power it could be that the motor bearings are stiff and need lubrication and cleaning. If they check out could be that motor windings are open and unit needs to be replaced.
