electrical problem

SOMEONE HELP

I was riding two nights ago when my gauge cluster went completely out.....i thought i blew a fuse, no biggie, about an hour later i lost all turn signals, brake light and my horn......i took the bike to the shop and they said that it would cost 160.00 to fix, that they had to re-wire the aftermarket turn signals cause they were wrong....then an hour later they said they could not get the Lights to work and that i probably burnt something in the gauge cluster, this shop from what i am told rips people off a lot, they told me everything else was fixed.....i didn't want to pay for the service in full since they didn't fix it but they said if i didn't they would keep the bike....i left and got gas.....i found out that the brake light still didn't work and the horn, plus the right side turn signals....so the only thing they fixed was the left turn signals and the cluster now works fine,,,except that the right signals do not show up on the display, the manager is giving me my money back.....after i left i was on the way home and the left turn signals blew again, cluster is still on....CAN ANYONE PLEASE HELP ME WITH THIS ONE???

When you wired the aftermarket lights, Did you use electrical tape? Is your fuse box wet at all?

They were on the bike when I bought them.....so i am not sure....This past Saturday I did wash the bike, but even if the fuse box got wet, the shop replaced the fuse yesterday and it blew last night.....the brake lights and horn not working is probably because they never changed the fuse.....but i am not sure if they are separate from the other issues or not....i don't know anything at all about wiring this stuff, i unfortunately am completely ignorant on the subject, what ever anyone suggests would be greatly appreciated, i just had the worst time at this shop, they were the rudest bastards i have ever met.....they told me to take them to court for not fixing anying and i told them i would, this morning i got my refund from them.

I would definitely go back and check your wiring, it sounds like something is rubbing together and shorting out.
