65 taillights, brakelights and reverse lights
Good morning all!
I'm reading in the forums about taillights and which should be doing what function. And I see the wiring diagram for a 66 (see attached) that shows all three lights supposed to be brake and taillights ... but mine's a 65.
So, for a 65 with reverse light built into the center one on each side, should the middle one also shine red on tail and/or brake light application? or just the ones on either side of the reverse light?
and while we're talking about it... my reverse light is not lighting up when I put it in reverse. Where does it get it's signal? the shifter lever? or on the transmission? (mine is an SS with the automatic lever in the floor console, if that makes a difference)
