Maybe the T/S switch was "transplanted" from another vehicle?
Looking at the schematic, it is suggested that the colors are a direct match.

Nice info Miss. Did ya have to blow the dust off that book? :yesnod:

Volt meter will tell you if either wire is hot with ignition switch on. K.I.S.S. or you will start sounding like me on the Chebbie Cavalier board, LOL!

Ford built the wiring harness so that the safety switch was a "plug in". On the manual trans the two wires that would connect to the safety switch of an automatic simply plug into one another. That bypasses the safety switch.

I too am puzzled by the four wires you mentioned. Still trying to find where my 63 wiring manual is hiding but there shouldn't be any "extra" wires in the bundle that hooks up to the wiring from out of the steering column.

Maybe you could list the colors of the wires you have coming out of the steering column and the color of the wires in the bundle mentioned above?

Hello,
Need some help. I have 1963 Ford Falcon Sprint. Currently both tail light work, but I only the right brake light and left turn signal work. I have replaced the turn signal switch and still have the same problem. Anyone?

There is a nice full electrical wiring diagram booklet out. I've got one, and it's available on Ebay. I've just rewired almost my entire Sprint. Just like your mentioning. Check the ground wire connections in the trunk. Check how the bulbs are seated, that can REALLY screw things up. I had cracked sockets in one and it was doing exactly what your talking about. Do you have good bulbs in the front turn lights in the front bumper? Are they working? Grounded? That's another bummer to watch out for. Had it, seen it.
