1966 Impala Gauge Package & Dummy Lights Wiring
My gauges work but my dummy lights don't (correctly), should they? I have the 66 Chassis Service Manual but the wiring diagram (fig. 94 on 12-53) seems to be for a gauge-less car. It shows two wires coming from the temperature gauge and ultimately ending up at the instrument cluster. My car only has one wire from it. When I got the car, I was told that the engine had been rebuilt a few years ago. The sending unit that is on it only has one connector. There is a green wire up by the firewall that had been cut (I assume when the engine was removed). A black wire was spliced into it and ran to the sending unit. The cold engine light never comes on. The hot engine light comes on, and stays on, after the engine has been running a few minutes. The temp gauge works fine & that's what I go by. I would like to get the lights working, if they did from the factory. The only lights that work on my dash (besides the blinkers) are the hot light (constantly, as stated) and the bright light (when the brights are pushed). None of the lights come on when the ignition is turned on, either, not even the hot light (I don't believe the bright light should come on, correct?). I know nothing about electrical systems, so any help would be appreciated. Also, is there a wiring diagram somewhere that covers a 66 with a gauge package?
