SS dash conversion-4

Last confused wire-

Since my car is a convertible, I think this is the wire that goes to the drivers side door switch to ground the courtesy light? It exits the wiring loom right at the connector for the headlight connector.

(I have all of the repair manuals for the chevelle including the special wiring diagram book but none seem to help).

The black lead is for the key minder and goes to the door jamb switch. These were oftern cut because no one wanted to listen to the buzzer. The white lead is for the courtesy lights. The door jamb switch on the driver side is a dual male spade with a plastic shield in the middle that separates them.

Where was the courtesy light bulb (under the dash) suppose to mount? Mine is all hacked up and only the drivers side bulb exists. Also does it pull its power off of the door switch circuit?

Re: SS dash conversion-4

The courtesy lights have their own harness. They "interface" with the existing wire connections at the white wire door pin switches so when either grounds, the lights come on. The orange wires tie together and draw power from the courtesy circuit ("BAT" power at the fuse block).

Do you have the assembly manual, it shows this all layed out.
