67 rs headlight wiring

Having a bad time with the wiring !!!! Brand new aaw wiring for the rs headlights !!! I've read all other post on this but getting tired !!! Can someone send me a color diagram on the headlight switches and the relay board ??? The relay board is new too !!! Or you can call me also at 660-744-3542 !!! My new wiring has on the drivers side radiator blue and purple and the light has brown and gray !!! On the pass side radiator it has Lt green and blue on the light it has dark green and brown !!! on david pozzi web it says the drivers side light at top should be purple and gray at top of radiator .... pass side light at top Lt green and radiator at top dark green !!! But this way my wiring won't hardly reach unless I and wire and redo it ???? And one other thing does the switches bolt on with the ground wire up on all 4 of them or not ????

Re: 67 rs headlight wiring

factory replacement I think , it has all the factory plugs , but it does have an upgrade on the alternator, it just has the wiring for internal alt, all the external wiring is gone !!!! It should be all color correct !!!

Re: 67 rs headlight wiring

All limit switches grounds should face down.
Headlight bulbs must be installed for doors to work.
Ignition must be on for doors to close.
Check out my help page for the correct limit switch and relay wire colors here:

Happy 4th guys

Re: 67 rs headlight wiring

Well , the relay board is hooked up right . The lights open ,but when you shut the lights off they stay open !!! Plus when I hit the dimer switch the lights go out,not sure if they are on low or high when there on, I don't have the dash in yet!!!! Would the horn relay mess with any of this ????? I'll change one of the head lights to see if I can get them to work better!!! Also I did buy a new dimer switch and changed it out,so if changing the light does"nt work , I"ll scratch my head some more,or beat it on the vise !!!

Re: 67 rs headlight wiring

Re: 67 rs headlight wiring

If I read the comments right the headlight bulb filament acts as a resistor and without it in place the circuit is broken, so yes you need a good working headlamp bulb with both high and low filaments in place. I guess you could test this theory by using a jumper across the high and low spade of the bulb socket to the ground spade. If the doors open and close in either high or low beam operation modes you are down to buying two new bulbs.

Re: 67 rs headlight wiring

Sometimes the lights won't close if the limit switch buttons aren't pushed in far enough with the metal brackets that the door covers attach to. This is how the circuit completes. With key on, push in on the limit switch button mounted on the front of radiator. Try both sides one at time. I have seen this take a few seconds on some cars to work. If this helps, adjust the limit switch out a bit. I have also seen where a bit of dirt or dust was built up on the buttons themselves and after cleaning and lubricating them, they started working. ( Maybe try something like spraying with contact cleaner, wouldn't hurt to clean and lube all four ) It doesn't take much to have them out of adjustment. Just mentioning this since it is a very easy test to try before you start taking things apart. Also, I have seen a bad relay (even a bad new replacement) cause the very same problem.
