Default Indicator wiring help

I'm in the middle of rewiring my trike and have hit a problem with the indicators.
I have a 3 pin relay and only 2 wires that go to it, one earth and one from the switch. The wiring diagram say the 3rd wire goes to the cancelling unit but there isn't and never has been a cancelling unit and all the other wires that go to it aren't there and never have been.
I also have the hazard light relay and circuit fitted but that doesn't seem to connect to the other relay???
There was definitely a 3 pin relay on the original wiring so does anyone have any idea what connects to the 3rd pin? The only wire I have that I'm not 100% sure of what it connects to is an extra earth but I can't see it having 2 earths.

Missed this before, from my understanding of relays, whether three or multi pin they basically have the low load side (switching) which usually has a live and neutral, and the high load side which usually has a single live output, which in the multi pin variety sometime has up to three live output pins, all are usually numbered for recognition, try googling relay and you should find any related diagrams for connection.

Originally read that at 5.30 this morning and didn't make head nor tail of it but on reading it again I think I get what you're saying. Thanks

So simple now looked it up, a + a - and one that goes to the indicators I think. Its a b l e type and it's thrown me a bit.
I think my original hazard relay was connected with this somehow but not sure now. Will do more research and cobble something together that will work.

Does anyone know if I could share the live and negative connections for my indicator and hazard relays as it's going to make connecting that bit a lot easier and I would be able to connect to the live after the extra fuse that has?

Usualy indicators would be fed from the ignition switch. But the hazards to be legal have to work when the ignition is on and when off. So need a feed not from the ignition switch.
