In the other Tread, they are talking about a 14 amp fuse.
The one I have is a SFE 9.
Shall I have 14 Amp in the other, or in booth?
Apart from that, another wierd thing have appered.
All my lights, except for the Stop light works.
When my lights are off, the indicators have the same speed. When lights are on, the left goes slower, but the right goes as before.... What is that all about?

Anders,there is nothing easy about these cars.You have to reach under the dash,there is a button on the right side of the switch,you have to push it in and pull out of the light knob.The knob and shaft will come out all the way,then take a large screwdriver and unscrew the bezel.The swith will pull out from the back.BE SURE TO DISCONNECT THE BATTERY FIRST!!!!

AhA! So Thatīs how it works. Great community this.
Battery is disconected. From an ensurance point of wiew, we must have a little "quick disconnector" at the battery here. Looks like a rotary knob connected on the earth on the battery, so itīs easy to connect and disconnect.

Do I dare to try a 15 Amp fuse instead of a 14? I canīt find a 14 in this country...

If the 9 amp is good then, use it. A 15 would be ok, but don't go any larger. When I measured mine current through the Stop light fuse it was about 8 amps.

Thanks Wildcat.
Took her out for a spin today, as it was som kind of gathering ( I was hoping to meet someone who was good on the electrics...), and the weater was just perfect. Mostly Caddys and a very pink Impala... Old American cars are VERY, VERY popular here, and there are MANY of them, and loads of realy fine ones. Nice day Still using the Texas plates , and the temporary red plates in the window, until I get my new. For cars like this, we get smaller plates so they fit.

Nice Buick also. Like that one.
