I don't know much about the system, mine has worked fine for years.

I just got finished reworking my RS lights a couple weeks ago and was successful largely due to the diagram that David diligently posts for all who ask the question here.

I thought I would add some additional info to suppliment the diagram. The limit switches are obviously mounted on the radiator frame and the headlight brackets. Unless yours is like mine was and had the headlight switches missing and a bolt sheared off in the hole, wires tied into the headlights, a broken wire hidden under a connector at the relay board....enough of that, it's over and I whipped it.

Back to what you need. The diagram posted will show all the major wires. It doesn't show colors of the two wires which come from the door motors. These plug into a harness that will hook into the limit switches.

The driver's side radiator limit switch should have a grey wire plugged into the top of it. The driver side limit switch on the headlight should have a purple wire plugged into the top of it.

The passenger side radiator switch should have a DARK green wire plugged into the top of it, while the headlight bracket switch should have a LIGHT green wire plugged into the top of it. These wires and plugs were present in my car but circumvented by an idiot wiring scheme. They should be in yours also, if not disturbed.

Don't try turning on the headlights with just one limit switch hooked up to test. The motor will run opposite and could cause damage if allowed to run. The system only works when all wires are attached to appropriate switches.

Your car may already have these in place but mine was butchered and didn't. My lights work perfectly now.

BTW-- the diode is in the brown wire about 12 inches away from the ignition in case you want to check it.

If the arms that actuate the doors are loose and won't turn the doors properly, and the tightening nut is stripped like mine was, post or email me and I'll tell you what I did.

Good luck
Lance

Lance,
Great advice, do you mind if I quote you and post it on my web page with my wiring diagram?
I think it would be of great help to others here and I'll give you the credit.

I haven't had any real troubles to fix on mine but I'm compiling info just in case!
Thanks, David

I have no problem with that at all. A graphics program could drop in the type to label the wires on that diagram to make it an all in one. I'm 95% sure those colors are right since another camaro owner confirmed that his were like mine.

Just glad to be able to contribute something with all advice I've gotten from this site.

Done, the file has the same name so the old link should still work.

It's getting a little fuzzy, I'll try and clean it up.
Thanks, David

Re: 67' hide away headlight wiring diagram

seems I am late, well real late on this topic. The site the diagram was on says it is no longer playing. Is there another place to get the diagram from?
