In trying to figure out why my console ammeter doesn't work I noticed that the fuse in the orange wire is blown, can anyone tell me what this wire does and what these boxes are under the left front fender? the large gauge red wire in the first picture is taped off on the end and hanging freely. In the second picture does anyone know what the red and yellow wire are that attach to this junction block behind the brake booster? the car runs fine and seems to charge normally. thanks in advance!

1st picutre is the relays that control 67 RS hideaway headlights. Fuse has been added,,,Orange should be hot wire off circuit breaker on relay panel.
2nd picture is an added circuit breaker ,,, need to chase wires to see where they go & check wiring for colors

Go to http://www.rclabbe.com/rswiring/rswiring.pdf for original wiring

thanks! - the headlight doors don't work and will be a winter project after christmas, the section in there on the headlights looks like it will be very helpful. the relays are described as R1, R2, and R3 - how do you know which is which. Also, any idea why the fuse would be added?

is it a convertible? That breaker looks similar to power top breaker or power windows maybe?

the car is a 67 rs/ss coupe 396 4spd with power windows. do you mean the circuit breaker on the firewall behind the brake booster? (2nd picture)

Alright, i figured out why the ammeter doesn't work. the wires to the junction box and horn relay are missing from the light harness that plugs into the firewall behind the brake booster. I don't know why this would be. the pins are also missing from inside the connector. I would really like to run the wires through the connector to keep the wiring original but can't find the pins to fit inside the connector. anyone have a source for these other than scouring a junk yard??

Check American Auto Wire. They make new replacement harnesses. They might sell you the stuff you need vs. the whole thing.

american auto wire and other wiring harness retailers i contacted were not willing to sell the connectors i needed. After quite a search i found an excellent source for almost all original Delphi connectors used by GM.
