62 Steering wheel wiring
1 Attachment(s)
Hi all. Trying to get my ‘62 back together. I swapped out the 3-speed steering column with, what I believe is, a 72-ish column. I replace the turn signal switch and now I need to wire it back up. I bought an American Autowire adapter but still getting nothing. This brake lights seem to work but no turn signals. I’ve got no hot wires coming through the factory “pyramid-style” connector. The adapter comes with a flasher that needs 12V and is connected to the fuse box ignition. When I have ignition on, I get no operation what-so-ever. When I turn the hazards on, then the factory yellow wire and the left and right flasher wire (light and dark blue) also come hot but do not flash.

Does anyone have a good ‘62 wiring diagram or tell me what could be causing this? Isn’t the factory yellow wire supposed to have power from the fuse box? Is there a factory flasher module I can use and eliminate this adapter thing?

Thanks for the help.

Okay…got power to the yellow wire…didn’t realize I needed to add the flash when I replaced the main harness…rookie mistake.

However, I think I got a faulty switch. The rear wire work properly, but both the front come on when you select either right or left turn…bad switch?

There are some wiring diagrams in the FAQ's that I would look through before changing the switch. The 62 has a single dash indicator light so if the harness taps into the wrong place, you may get left and right signals at the same time.
