Re: Turn signals and brakes together blows fuse
Hi Rich, i had a similar problem with my 67. I used an american autowire kit and new turn signal switch. Mine would blow the fuse for the brake lights when i used the turn signals sporadically. Finally after a month or so of this happening, i tried tracing all the wires making sure none were exposed etc, then i pulled the steering wheel one day and while i was sitting in the driver seat in the driveway at dusk, i put my foot on the brake and turned on the turn signal and pop i saw a very faint spark where the turn signal switch would actually touch the inside of the steering column. Only happened when i had my foot on the brake and turned on the turn signal. I don't know if the aftermarket turn signal switches are just a hair bigger than the stock ones or if i had just somehow had mine misaligned a little. Maybe you are having the same problem. Hope this helps, Aaron
