I replaced all headlight/taillights with LEDS and the turn signals, then they stopped working, they turn on and still act as hazards but no blinkers I have checked every fuse and even replaced the turn signal stalk and the "relay". Any ideas what to check or do next thank you.

Do they come on solid, but do not blink? If so, change the flasher to a electronic type. The original flasher worked on bulb load. If they are staying on solid, your LED's have reduced the bulb load and that will not let the original flasher work properly.

a "short" is an errant direct path to ground that causes too much current which blows fuses.
if you still have the bulbs swap them back in. if they flash that will verify the wiring is OK, then go looking for the "mis-match"
caused by the lower load LEDs.
sorry, I don't have specific info on '94s.

The left side comes on solid? Or are they dark? If they are dark, pull your hazard switch up and down rapidly about 10 times and then see what happens. Those things get dirty over the years. And since you have been messing with it, you might have a dirty contact in the hazard part of the signal switch.
