69 Headlight Switch

Is there anyone with a wiring diagram for a 69 camaro headlight switch. I have the old harness but it's not of much help considering theres some wires missing. I think I have the terminals in the rigth spot for the most part but the only thing that works when i pull the switch all the way out are the parking lights. No gauges taillights or nothing. Also, I read in an old thread or something that there is supposed to be a ground wire going from the headlight switch to a proper ground. If so, where on the switch does the wire connect to? Im sure I have more questions but those are the biggest problems to me right now. Any help is appreciated.

Re: 69 Headlight Switch

Alright, got all the above problems solved except I am left with one more. When I turn the taillights on, all the bulbs turn on. When I hit the brakes, it doesn't light up, it just stays the same. Now, when I turn the lights on, it turns off. Can anybody relate to this or help me.?

Re: 69 Headlight Switch

Yes on a 69 the headlamp sw does have a ground strap assy for it. Go to Classic Industries.com and lookup p/n 3937657. It goes around your sw and then the wire connects to the underside of the dash. Make sure to clean the paint off or use a star washer under it. It sounds like your problems are ground related, but check your brake sw by your pedal to make sure it's activating ( the little plastic sw). If you have a meter, I would suggest ohming it out to make sure it is changing states when being depressed. Also make sure your rear wiring harness is grounded. There should be a black wire around the trunk latch assy that gets mounted to the latch support. It needs to be on or you'll get all kinds of weird problems.
