1967 Deluxe Door Jamb Switch

Did a search but couldnt find the answer. Does a 67 rs/ss with deluxe interior use the one or two terminal door jamb switch? Thanks

Re: 1967 Deluxe Door Jamb Switch

You need both. Maybe
The double spade is drivers side and pass side is single in vehicles 67 to 70 something where you either have Key Minder on the horn relay or you have optional courtesy lights.

I would think for an 67 RS/SS you would use the dual but I'm basing that on that I have a 69 with key minder. You can use the dual spade and only power one leg.

So then, if I have no courtesy lights (and 67s didnt have key minders?), I would only have/need the single terminals on both doors?

But if I wanted to add courtesy lights, I would need one double terminal on the driver side and single on passenger side? I ask this because I am trying to add them.

Thanks

On the stock wiring harness of a 67 SS/RS you should have a connection for the courtesy lights behind the left kick panel. The door jamb switch on the drivers side only has one terminal. The picture below shows the door jamb switch and the courtesy light connection. Most of the suppliers sell a courtesy light kit that just plugs into that connection.
Sorry the picture is on it's side. The top is to the left.

I'm assuming you are referring to the deluxe interior sail panel lights. Besides the door jamb switches, there's a connector in the trunk on the taillamp harness that leads to the sailpanel lights. If referring to U29 option(underdash courtesy lights), there is a taped up orange glove box wire for that.
67 Door jamb switches are the same whether SS, RS, deluxe or standard int, or optionless car.

Re: 1967 Deluxe Door Jamb Switch

I added under dash courtesy lights and the socket was available exactly like in Roger's photo(his shows courtesy harness connected). I don't know how you could live without these lights! I guess if you never drive your car in the dark. But they are great to have.

Re: 1967 Deluxe Door Jamb Switch

Was Camaro the only GM line that did not put at least a center roof dome light in all coupes as standard equipment? Or were the sail-panel light the base for coupes - I always thought they were optional upgrades to the base dome light. ?

I'm a vert guy and the three you get - two under dash and rear console are really not enough to read a map by LOL

Re: 1967 Deluxe Door Jamb Switch

Don't know exactly but my car had only sail panel lights and the console rear light - no dome light. Those cast all the light into the back seat and are pretty useless. I guess the sail panel lights are part of the deluxe interior package and a dome light is standard interior lighting.

Re: 1967 Deluxe Door Jamb Switch

Speaking of dome lights, I replaced my wimpy original with one from a 74 Pontiac. It has those focus-lenses with individual switches and bolted right in. I can't remember for sure but I think no extra wire is needed to make them work with the dome light off. OK, I'm sure. My headliner has never been removed. Of course the original bulb is still in there. We don't want to mess with karma.
Also, get the courtesy lights. Well worth it. The original option included the trunk light and under hood light too. Not sure about the rear console light, it was probably included with the console. The courtesy light option was $5.95 retail. (with a standard interior)

Which would be the 2 terminal for the drivers side and single terminal for the passenger side correct? Anyone know if rock auto sells both type? They have three to choose from but make no mention if they are 1 or 2 terminal type...

No. Look at Roger's pic. Single terminal. Pass side has separate white wire feeding it. Switches are self adusting just in case you did not know. They slide within a barrel.

Got it now, thanks. Heartbeat City lists a 67 as using either the 2 or 1 terminal which was confusing me...

Sailpanel lights are only a '67 deluxe application.

I can see why you could be confused. I found another supplier that offers a two terminal switch for a 67. I notice in another thread you said you rewired your car with a AAW kit. If you rewired your car it is hard to say which switch you need.
The thing is the door switches just grounds that white wire to turn the interior lights on. If you only have one wire coming out of your harness then you may need that two terminal switch. The white wire would connect to the switch and then you would need another wire going from the driver's door switch to the passenger door switch.
The stock harness had two white wires coming from it which go to each door switch. So the stock switches just had one terminal.
