Wiring the 10A breaker

I have just restored my 65 convertible and I don't remember where the wires go on the circuit breaker. The little 10 amp breaker that mounts to the firewall where do both sides go?

Re: Wiring the 10A breaker

One side appears to go to the horn relay while the other is part of the Fisher Body wiring harness. Where it goes inside the car...?

This is from the 1965 Chevelle Assembly Instruction Manual - hope it helps

Re: Wiring the 10A breaker

Dale,,, How about this. Doing a frame off on my 70 SS 454 El Camino. going back together, Would you believe, I did not remember where the C. Breaker went for the P. Windows.
Spent a long time looking and wondering??????? Dumb Azz, It goes dang near behind the B. Booster.
Why was this an issue, The wires behind the booster looked like they were connected, So I am looking everywhere else. I used the firewall dimple locator.

On my 70 the wire coming FROM the breaker goes to the top switch on the dash.

Re: Wiring the 10A breaker

Thanks all.
I was thinking it was for the convertible top switch but it is already wired. I will follow those switch wires and see if maybe they are not connected. I just connected the battery and got no power to anything so we'll see.

Re: Wiring the 10A breaker

I think the same circuit breaker is used for (1) folding top motor, (2) power seats, (3) power windows, and (4) tailgate motor. GM doc shows it to be a 40 C. B. though, they don't show a 10 amp unit.
