In Topic: Rewired Headlights with relay issues!!

IT WORKS!!!  :thumbup:

I meet a older guy who drove around the valley in a 69 510. He let me borrow his Clymer Repair manual for 510/wagons/Pickups 1968 - 1972.

The wire diagram in the book was exactly like mine. So the wire to post 2 on the light switch is black. The diagram showed a W/R wire from post 2 to Bat +. I just cut the black wire that was spliced into another black wire that was going to ground and tapped into the R/L wire (constant power) that was hanging nearby and the headlights came on!! 

I tested the hi/low beams, and they both worked great!! I also tested the rest of the lights with headlights on. No problems!!

The wire diagram I bought online also showed a W/R wire at the light switch, which I didnot have. 

Thanks again for everyones input!!

Thanks Shacks510..I will try that as my last resort! Just got down removing the double relay setup by DQ. I switched over to the single relay removing the original headlight relay as diagramed in Bananahamuck's response to my problem. Now, when I pull out the headlight switch I hear the relay working but still no lights. Same results as the double relay with original headlight relay in place.

 

Just wondering..I have a R/L wire with female connector just hanging by the headlight switch not attached to anything and its has constant 12 volts. I also have another B/R with male spade unhooked also. I have no W/R wire at the headlight switch (as noted in the single relay diagram) only a R/Y with no power but the G/L wire has constant power.

 

(I had a full head of hair when I started this two weeks ago!) :confused:

Bananahamuck..in that wiring diagram, what is the box below the light switch. Is that the other headlight relay that is controlled by the hi and low beam stalk on the steering column?
