Default Not sure about continuity but

John I have some pictures I just took but not sure how to post them. I'm using 3 wires now from the column's 10 wires (two I figure are for horns) so 5 wires I'm using. I have signals, F & R, but I have now brake lights.

I will place images onto www.emmajeanb.com, in photo page.

Thanks - Michael.

Michael,

You will not be able to post directly without being a member. You can use an external hosting server though. You can also email me the pictures directly if you want. My email is jopizz@verizon.net.

John

I saw the pictures you have posted. On the switch the solid red and solid yellow wires originally went to the front turn signals. All other wires either go to the turn signal indicator relay that was under the dash, the fuse box or the turn signal relay in the sequential pack. There was no wire connection for the brake light switch. That went directly to the turn signal relay in the sequential pack. If you want I can email you the '65 wiring diagrams and you can see how it was originally wired. You will probably need to run separate circuits for the brake lights and turn signals and use some sort of switch or relay to turn one off and the other one on.

The black wire in the wiring harness feeds the horns. The color may be different on the switch itself.

John

Yes, please email the diagrams John.

Am I thinking right; could I use a relay to tell the wiring that - hey brake lights, you can operate yourself to turn OFF while the turn signal is used then turn back ON when blinking is done on that side. That really seems too simple don't it!

If a relay just turns on or turns off, the equipment it's hooked to then why wouldn't it work.

What kind of relay would do that? (Shoot, I still don't even have brake lights yet. Haven't gotten that far YET! )
