Re: Helpful Headlight Switch Info

Awesome news
Just got my project and tail lights were not working
Whoever had it before me cut the fricken wires on both sides of the plug going to the back lights
all the way into wiring harness
I re connected that but couldn't figure it out why I had headlights but no tail lights

Re: Helpful Headlight Switch Info

Well took bumper off and found that where the wire grommets go down from inside trunk
someone also cut those off right below grommet
Luckily I have a access to a spare car in the woods and was able to get the harness off that
I now have tail lights but no brake lights
My fuse is good but no power to the brake switch
Just got a wiring diagram but Im no expert in this
I think it has to do with the column??????????????????

Re: Helpful Headlight Switch Info

My`65 convertible was restored several years ago, and all lights functioned. Recently the interior courtesy lights and console lights stay on. These were converted to LED when restore was done. To this point I have replaced the H/L switch and door jam switches. Lights still on. I am NOT an electrical wizard, any suggestions?

Re: Helpful Headlight Switch Info

Is there anybody on this post that either still has or saved the original pics submitted by the poster back in 2012 of the headlight switch conversion. I was hoping to have someone repost the earlier pics which from the start of this post which are not available anymore. I am in the middle of doing this conversion and see I could either buy a 68 switch or use my current 64 switch. Pics are always helpful if anyone can repost. Thanks

Re: Helpful Headlight Switch Info

Thread from the dead!

Dean, thanks for starting this thread, plenty good info in it.

Either I missed it or it hasn't yet been discussed, I have two questions. I'm working on a 1971 car.

Is there a fuse or circuit breaker in the headlight switch?

Is the high beam indicator lamp (the blue dot in the cluster) fed from the high beam wire from the floor high beam switch? It looks like these two wires are joined at the bulkhead connector.

I didn't start the thread, Joe did.
Yes the switch has a circuit breaker and yes the blue light is for bright.

Re: Helpful Headlight Switch Info

Well thanks to Joe then!
Yes, but does the blue indicator lamp come off the wire that is the high beam feed after the floor high beam switch?
