Hey Marines069 check your PM inbox.

Brake and turn signals do or don't work? Hard to tell from your statement. Double check your grounds at the parking lamps up front if they don't work.
Did these light that don't work now - work before you swapped out the headlight switch?

Check the headlight harness connector to make sure you have it all the way on the new switch if you haven't already looked there.

Re: 1969 Headlight switch

Did you buy the correct switch. Thereís a 7-prong and an 8-prong.

Brake and turn go thru the T/S switch but the parking and tail do not. If there is a 7 and 8 terminal switch that is my first choice for the problem. My second choice is the switch has a terminal in a different spot then the plug on the harness.
