1967 RS headlights

I have a 67 RS and the headlights use to work fine but know they open but wont close. I changed the relays and the limit switches and I still have the same problem. I am not sure what headlight switch I am suppose to use since they all say exc 67rs any advice would be appreciated. Thanx, Mark

Re: 1967 RS headlights

Check the diode under the dash up by the ignition switch. Look at the diagram from this website http://www.gvtc.com/~rlaa/ for the 67 - 69 rs console gauge & headlight pdf. You can get the diode from radio shack Catalog # 276-1661 (http://www.retro-electro.net/FAQ.html), I paid like $1.90 for a pack of 3. It fixed my problem. I had to take the gauges out of the dash to replace the diode. You can use a basic electric tester to see if the diode is bad.

Re: 1967 RS headlights

I had the same problem and one day I was playing around under the dash when all of a sudden, BAM, the doors closed. I happen to hit the ignition switch. Make sure the ignition switch is making 100% contact. You may want to take it out, pull the plug off, and clean it up and reinstall. Try the diode like 1st 67 said and then the switch.
