Harness didn't come with instructions?

    Soluton I posted was a comment, not a solution...Actually a question??? Actually, I'd rather make a harness from scratch rather than try and figure one out without instructions...Since 71 did not have a really complicated system it would not be too difficult.

I have a 1964 chevelle that I installed a idit column it has connections for right and left turn signal but the fuse box I have does not have a place to connect them too

Unless you bought a 'universal' column it should plug in. It will NOT plug into the fuse panel, but the stock wiring harness for the turn signal switch itself.

Now if you don't have the stock plugin then you're going to have to come up with one. If you're 'starting from scratch' on the wiring then perhaps Painless or some other company has a kit for your car.

I would think the column should have come with some sort of instructions. If it didn't then give them a call. (517) 424-0577 Retrofit Series

Why are all of my dash lights on and speedometer doesn't work

Could be the fuse for instrument panel lights or the connector for the instrument panel at the back of the cash cluster as they are easily dislodged.. If there has ever been any under cash work done or stereo wiring. Etc. If you bought the car used I suspect the harness connection. If the vehicle starts and runs I suspect one of the two.

I was wondering if the "painless" wiring harness is as easy as they say and if it has any variations it wont work with. i have just had the engine totally rebuilt as well a the tranny. The wiring under the...

Unless you have some decent knowledge of electrical systems, I'd recommend that you leave the present wiring in place, clean it up and perhaps re-tape any "raggy" areas. Not saying it can't be done but remember that one mistake in a critical area will be far from painless.

Tail lights out

There is another fuse box behind the change holder on the lower left side of the dash. When you open the change holder you will see two "Fingers" one on each side that hold the change box up. Gently squeeze these inward and rotate the change box out. You will find the missing fuses there!
