HEY GEAR HEADS,
I HAVE A 1967 CONVERTIBLE MUSTANG.
I HAVE SPENT THE PAST WEEK TRYING TO RECTIFY ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS.
RUNS FINE.
HEADLIGHTS OK, WIPERS OK, HEATER FAN OK, EMERGENCY FLASHERS OK.
TAIL LIGHTS, BRAKE LIGHTS,TURN SIGS, DASH LIGHTS, PARK LIGHTS, HORN, DO NOT WORK.
ALL OF THE ABOVE WORK IF I "CHEAT" POWER TO THEM.
HEADLIGHT SWITCH WORKS OK... EXCEPT THAT, THE WIRES TO CONNECTOR MARKED "A"(ACESSORY?)HAVE NO POWER. THESE WIRES ARE GREEN TO BRAKE SWITCH, AND YELLOW TO HORN IN STEERING COLOUM.
REGARDING HEAD LIGHT SITCH, IN THE FULL OFF POSITION, "A" HAS CONTINUITY TO "R"(REAR LIGHTS) IN THE FULL ON POSITION "A" HAS CONTINUITY TO "R" + "I"(INSTURMENT LIGHTS) WITH ONLY PARKING LIGHTS ON "A" HAS CONTINUITY TO "R" + "P"
ON THE FUSE BLOCK THE 2.5A. INSTURMENT LIGHT CIRCUIT HAS ONLY ENOUGH VOLTAGE TO BARELY MOOVE VOLTAGE METER NEEDLE OFF OF ZERO.
I DO HAVE A NEW TURN SIGNAL SWITCH/HARNESS, WHICH GOT THE EMERGENCY LIGHTS WORKING.
NOW WHAT???
BAD

  You need to check the fusible links and the bulkhead plug (plug thru fire wall) Here's a schematic


  If you have headlight doors check that circuit including the door solenoid.



 

  If you have further questions please post back

SOUNDS GOOD, NOW ALL I GOTTA DO IS LOCATE FUSELINKS.
EVEN IF THIS DOES NOT FULLY REPAIR THE PROBLEM, THE SCHEMATICS ARE MORE THAN WORTH IT.
NOT SURE IF I DID THIS CORRECTLY SO YOU COULD RECIEVE YOUR PAYMENT. I DID FUND THE ACCT. BUT MAY NOT HAVE CLICKED ON ACCEPT. LET ME [email protected]
THANKS
BAD

  The fusible links are located on the battery+ side of the solenoid. You have the large battery cable and the smaller wires the smaller ones are the fusible links.


  All you have to do now is click on the accept button to complete the trans action, you can still keep the question open if you need a little extra help . As we are always willing to give a little extra after an accept.


                                          Thank You In Advance

Reply to enginboy's Post: ALL WIRES APPEAR TO HAVE CONTINUITY. I JUST GOT HOLD OF WIRING DIAGRAM FOR 66 STANG. MINE IS A 67. AM HOPING THAT I CAN TRACE PROBLEM THROUGH THAT. THIS THING HAS BEEN MONKYED WITH. I THINK THAT THE HORN WIRE GOING TO LIGHT SW. SHOULD BE HOT, THUS SUPPLYING POWER TO TAIL LIGHTS ETC, WHEN SWITCHED TO ON POSITION.
LIKE I SAID, I CAN CHEAT POWER TO THESE ITEMS BUT WOULD PREFER TO REPAIR CORRECTLY.
TERMINALS ON LIGHT SW. ARE, "B"(BATTRY),"A"(ASCESSORY),"P"(PARK LIGHTS),""R"(REAR LIGHTS),"H"(HEAD LIGHTS), "I"(INSTURMENT LIGHTS), "D1"(DOOR LIGHTS),"D2"(DOME LIGHT).
WIRES COMEING INTO "B"+"D1" ARE ALWAYS HOT.
TURNING H.L. ON, "B" HAS CONT. TO "H".
TURNING DOME LIGHT ON "D1 HAS CONT. TO "D2".
TURNING ONLY PARK LIGHTS ON, "P" HAS CONT. TO "R"+"A".
TURNING ON DASH LIGHTS "D" HAS CONT. TO "R"+"P"+"A".
