Just picked up a 73, having some minor electrical issues, looking for help. First off, the dome light stays on no matter what..thinking a headlight switch problem? Next, when you press the brake pedal, the drivers side turn signal comes on, not the brake lights...I am new to Camaro resto, wondering if this has happened to anyone before? Appreciate any help with this, and any 73 Camaro resto tips as well..

A couple of things to check ... One the dome light, you are right that it could be the light switch ... also, remember that a ground is supplied by the door switches ... I would also check the door switches + connectors before pulling headlight switch ... One the brake issue, check that the proper bulbs are installed and properly oriented ... these are easy things to check before getting into more complicated stuff ...
