Light Switch Wiring

Postby jsmit » Tue Oct 05, 2004 7:55 pm

My 52' has a light switch that is rectangular as you look at it from the back, I can't figure how to wire it properly cause it doesn't match any of the pictures in my service manuals. Mine is 6 volt battery ignition (no mag.) The switch has 6 connection points the two on the right side are always hot based on my continuity check, other 4 are hot depending on switch pos. 1 or 2. Left over wires are 1 from headlight, 1 from tail light 1 from fuse housing and 1 from ammeter? How do I wire to get high and low beams and taillight correct? I was told that there are supposed to be resistors somewhere? If you havent' guessed electric isn't my best subject. Thanks for any help!!! :?:

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

My wife says I don't listen to her. - - - - - - - - Or something like that!

Thanks as ususal, I actually had that color diagram upon further searching in my file (circular). What do you know about the resistor?

Thanks again,
Jason

It's a wire wound (Nichrome - I think) 5 ohm resistsor. Delco 814545. Wattage capacity is about 20 - 25 watts. It is switched in series with the headlights in the dim position.
