+2 hazard flashers again

PostPost by: mr.vman » Sun May 22, 2011 3:29 pm

Wiring the instrument panel of my 69/70 Fed. +2. Quick questions. The hazard system, flashes the turn signals or side lamps The wiring diagram (more of a picture than diagram) shows, side lamp wires going to the hazard flasher (two red wires go the flasher). I am using all new switches (RD USA), is there a schmatic of positions for the terminals to wire the switches? Also using a new panel harness from British Wire. I have no side lamp relay, in it's place a three positon switch from RD. I hope to wire the switch, OFF, ON (side lamps), ON (headlamps and side lamps). The headlamp pods controled now by the slide vacuum switch. Trying to make things simple, at least for me. Thanks, Steve V. +2 In Arizona.

I am starting to understand one 3 position switch, it needs to be "jumpered" to have; off, on, on. The hazard switch not yet figured or wiper switch. I think the wire diagram (not much of one) for, March '68-March '69, could be wrong on the hazard flasher. The diagram lists, wire #11 to feed power into the hazard flasher can, terminal "B". I think that is a power terminal and, purple #19 would work better instead of getting power from the side lamp circuit. Stu, what do you think? Thanks for the time on this. Steve V. Trying to get the +2 together for LOG.
