After many frustrating hours of trying to find the short in my courtesy lights I have decided to purchase a new wiring harness. This will be the first time I have ever attempted such a task. I will be purchasing from Classic Ind. in SoCal. How many harness' do I need? Will one work for all lights or do I need a harness for each light. I never dreamed something like this would make me crazy. I should see my therapist on Monday maybe.

Why not buy them direct from the people that make them...that way you get the CORRECT answers to any questions that you may have. There are a couple of good harness manufactures out there that will be more that happy to help you. I included a link to M&H... I have used them and they are very helpful on the phone and the quality was great, also matched my old harness exactly. If you do a search in Electrical & Wiring you will see more suppliers that others have been happy with.

One of the main culprits of courtesy light problems are the door switches. Also these are kinda reverse wired.

I agree with 302XRAM. I purchased directly from M&H and was very satisfied. If you can"t afford to buy all the harnesses at one time like me, when you call back and order from them again they will give you a discount since you ordered from them before. They are a ery good company that builds a quality harness. Hope this helps!!

Sorry this situation make you invest in a new harness. Remember everywhere you are going to install a new wire or harness in a hard to reach place, like the roof lamp, don't remove the old wires until you use them to pull the new ones. Attach the new end to the old wires and pull them thru the way. That can help you.

I put console guages in my 69. I bought the whole pod from camaro speciality in New York.
The harness they sent me was from Factory Fit in N.Y. I had some questions and Factory Fit was very helpful. I needed 1 more harness I went to classic to get it and it too was made by Factory Fit. And the harness fit well and the instructions were written well.

A friend of mine is a dealer for Factory Fit. They really are good quality harnesses.
