Adding Factory Trunk Light In My 67

5302 Views 11 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Hot66ss
Okay here is my latest. About 6 months ago I found a 66 trunk light at the local junk yard. I pulled out the light and wiring including that little 3 way looking plug thing where is connects to the trunk harness. I did NOT get any switch or button to detect when the trunk is open to turn the light on, should there be one?? How do I wire this thing in to come on when I open the trunk? How do I wire this stupid thing!! Does cars with trunk light have different wiring harnesses? Are 66 and 67 trunk lights the same?

Thanks For the help

P.S when you respond please keep in mind i am dumb when it comes to wiring :O

Just one note, if you wire the light to be hot at all times, and it malfunctions you will end up with a dead battery. According to Murphy's Law it will be at the worst possible time.
