1967 SS/RS 350 with AT, console gauges

I re-wired my entire car from front to back with American Autowire Factory Fit wiring. I also replaced the RS relays (four seasons), RS limit switches (AAW), RS circuit breaker (AAW), and voltage regulator (Wells VR715). All new fuses and light bulbs as well.

I have a few problems, but the RS system is the first item I was going to try and fix.

When the headlight switch is pulled, the lights light up, but the doors do not open. If I open the doors manually, the doors shut when pulling the switch out.

I went through the www.retro-electro.net site and limit switches and relays seems to be connected correctly. I even double checked the headlight switch wiring and looks to be correct.

As Brent suggests, either the DC motor is wired backwards, or open/close relays are wired backwards, or headlamp switch is wired opposite.

Had the same issue with mine. Found out that I needed ground jumpers on the the limit switches. This was a whole wiring harness from painless wiring that I had. It didnt have the limit switch grounds included and I had no idea that they were needed. Hope that helps.

Thanks for all the responses guys.


Did you reverse the polarity of the wiring to the headlight doors by accident?
If I did, I didn’t even know I did. How do I check to see if I reversed the polarity to the motors?

I checked my limit switch wiring and relay board wiring against retro electrics website and everything seems to be matching. I will double check again…


Did you install the diode harness?


Yes, the diode harness is installed. I provided a picture of the ignition switch wiring in hopes that someone can confirm everything is wired right???

pink-IGN
red-BATT
purple-SOL
brown-ACC

There IS only one way to install the ignition connector on the switch right?




Also, here is a picture of my light switch. This is wired correctly right?



My limit switches came with the ground wires and all are attached.

Thanks!

The open and close limit switches may be swapped of physical position, or the motors wired backwards within the motor connector or at the relay socket.
