Re: Wiring Gremlin - 67 Plain Jane
I joined this forum with the hopes of finding someone with a topic related to an electrical issue I have with my 69.
similar to your condition, with my ignition in the on position, all the idiot lights illuminate like they are suppose to, but when the key goes to the on position, my "gen" light remains on, sometimes dim, sometimes normal intensity. The altenator, voltage regulator and horn relay have all been found to be in proper working order, and the battery is maintaining it's proper voltage as well. All fuses are good as are all the electrical connections that I can see. Everything else about the car electrically functions normallly. I had a similar issue with my 67 years ago, so when I was having it painted, I simply removed the entire electrical system, un-taped it all, replaced any worn or spliced wires, re-taped the harness and re-installed. havn't had a problem with it since (20 yrs)...as I am in the process of painting the 69 right now, it looks as though I may have to do the same thing again. Unless I just get lucky, and happen across the responsible wire or circuit, it will be faster to just refurbish the wire harness like I did before...
