I don't know why there are 4 wires on the N safety switch??????????? I have it all wired up and now when I turn the key there is nothing.... the oil light is on though.... and I checked the wires and the one for the coil is blinking????????? WTF what is the deal
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?
Now come over and work with the wiring in the Chebbie "Cadaver" I was given when my Mustang caught fire. Even the seasoned GM mechanics aren't certain which wire is which, GM kept changing the colors codes.
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.
