Fear not that the signals don't work yet, even during testing conditions; we are in the midst of ID'ing wires and performing diagnostics. Only after diagnostics are complete and we know what's wrong will the repair(s) take place.
The other wire colors next to the black wire are consistent with the wire colors from the headlight switch. So it would seem that the black wire goes on terminal E of the fusebox (the same terminal as the two white/black wires). And with the hazard warning on the dash lighting up, and then turning off with the hazard switch, the second white/black wire has been proven to go to the hazard switch as it should (and not to relay I2 as it appears).
Do you have a voltmeter or test light? Next is to test for voltage at the bottom (aka the cold side) of fuse #5. If no voltage, test for voltage at the top (the hot side) of fuse 5. Is there voltage? If yes, toss fuse #5 in the bin, clean the fusebox contacts and install a new fuse.
If there is voltage at the bottom of fuse 5, remove the flasher from the fusebox (N13, bottom row, 2nd from left) and test for voltage at the + (plus) terminal in the fusebox. If there's voltage, replace the flasher, if no voltage, repair the wiring from the bottom of fuse 5 to the + terminal of the flasher.
