Re: 67 RS Headlight Wiring

Thanks for the help guys. I just never finished the headlights on the RS. I decided to use the original parts that are still good. Not that it matters that it is original, I just think I can fix the old ones alot cheaper??

Re: 67 RS Headlight Wiring

if your motors are still good then it should be doable. If they are shot then check out the Retro-Electro kits...I have one and love it.

Re: 67 RS Headlight Wiring

I attached a drawing I made of the wiring in more of a ladder drawing electrical form. I had trouble with the "race" between relays R1 and R3. If R1 is faster then R3 to OPEN the doors, there is a short to ground at R3. If R1 is slow to de-energize on a CLOSE, then there is another short ot ground through R3. I installed an inductor between R1-3 and R3-3 to slow the current down from R1 to R3 and add in a little resistance. Seems to work good with the inductor in.

Dan- does pushing the pass side switch allow the motor to continue opening the headlight door? If yes, check the pass side switch to see if it has GND when both button pushed or not pushed. The motor should get GND through this switch when opening the door. Could be incorrect wiring/poor connection at the switch.
see this schematic. Good luck. http://www.pozziracing.com/Media/67rswire.jpg

Dan,
I would call Mark at Retro-Electro. He knows these things inside and out. He should be able to fix you right up...
