67 wiring problems

Hey Guys,

I am restoring a 67 RS camaro in Melbourne Australia.

After cleaning up all the wiring, I have started to install it and have come across the following issues:

With the brakes applied, right turn signal - brake light goes off left hand side (it the right brake stays on correctly when signalling left.

Hazards work as normal, but when brake is applied the rear lights stay on (stop flashing) and the fwd parkers stay on as long as the brake pedal is depressed. As soon as the pedal is released they flash as normal.

With instrument lights on, the turn signal lights in the cluster come on aswell - (and the instrument lights dont appear to be very bright.

No brake warning light in ignition mode - i have gen, temp and oil though.

Any advice on how to rectify these would be great.

Thanks in advance,

Check that you didn't squish the wiring harness in/around the steering column.

Re: 67 wiring problems

The hot side wiring for the brake light is shared with the temp & oil lights, and the fuel gauge. The brake light problem is probably separate from your other ones, and relating to the ground side of the circuit, which is the wire going to the switch on the ebrake.

Check the dash ground for sure. It goes by the high beam indicator. When you put the high beam indicator together, did you put the red lens on first? Putting this together in the wrong order will kill the dash ground.

Might be worth checking the tail light ground as welll. I usually put a star washer under 2 nuts on each tail light, this cuts through the paint and makes a good connection.
