This is killing me!
I just developed an electrical issue with my directionals. Here's the scenario:
- I've troubleshot with my voltmeter and and see power on the Pink wire to the directionals flasher
- I flip the directional switch on the steering column and see power applied up the column via the Purple wire
- NO DIRECTIONALS
The directionals worked just fine prior to me using the power-top convertible switch under the dash (I have a Convertible RS). The switch wasn't responding so I worked it a little harder and the top went up, but then that's when the directionals stopped working.
Unfortunately, I haven't seen any wiring diagrams which show how the power-top switch interacts with the rest of the harness. Could it be that there's some interaction with the directional switch in the column?!?
I also have power to the back-up tail lights on my 68-RS, but no illumination. The bulbs are brand new and correct part number (1156).
I don't believe my directionals problem has anything to do with the reverse lights not working. I can certainly see how the Pink wire goes to the floor shifter, but I've troubleshot the floor shifter switch as well and very clearly see the power get applied to the Green wire, which goes to the reverse tail light bulbs. I remove the tail light bulbs themselves and put the volt meter into the socket and I SEE POWER! What is going on!
