I am finally getting around to the wiring on my '69 Malibu LS3/T-56 project, and save for the Holley Terminator X being triggered off of what was formerly the coil wire, there are no other modifications to the stock wiring. At least, none that I have done. Granted, the last 50ish years have not been kind to this car, as there appears to be lots of hacks throughout the wiring system.
My problem: As soon as I connect the battery, I get a generator, and brake light illuminating on the dash. This is with the key off. With the key on, they remain, however everything else then works as it should (blower motor, terminator, radio, etc). Surely these lights should extinguish with the key off, as I imagine this will quickly sap a battery. Where do I start here? I am thinking potentially a bad ignition switch, but I wanted to canvas the minds of those more experienced than I before I dig into it. Thanks in advance!
