I searched through the horn relay problems and couldn't find my problem, While repairing the hideaways three wires were tucked up under the the fender with the relays. blue, white and large red. it looks like they would have attached to the rad support above the horn relay where guess what there is a blue, white and large red wire. The large red wire goes into a "resister" and comes out orange. I saw the picture of the horn relay and the wires that go into mine appear correct but in the shot there is a blue and white in the background. Upon further investigation I have now found a brown wire that was cut under the newer tape you can see in the pic. It is now attached to a red wire running under the rad support to the passenger headlight which was dim after hooking up the hideaways. I am attaching a couple pics for help.[ATTACH][ATTACH]Attachment 31495[/ATTACH][/ATTACH]
Its been over 30 years since I have had my hands on a car I could work on, so lets see how my memory serves me.
There is no voltage regulator now, The brown wire (now spliced to red) runs to the alternator. I believe later alternators had the voltage regulator built in ? If I am right then the car has been rewired for this alternator. The wires that were cut and tucked away are of no further use ? I probably have a bad headlight since it was in and out 5 times.
Do you have a wiring schematic? I looked in mine, it is possible that those are the wires that go to the voltage regulator. There should be a blue, white and red wire that goes from the regulator to the alternator. Has someone replaced your alternator with an internal regulated alternator?
Evey thing works as it should. That's why I never noticed anything on the 4 hour drive home when I bought it. It was just when I got into the hideaways that I found the wires. Funny thing though,my son has a friend who is an electrician and he said whoever did the wiring knew what they were doing, everything neat and in the right place.I wasn't there when he looked and never even asked him what he thought. He said no way a backyarder did it.
