Question about Chevrolet Chevy

1 Answer

My 1957 Chevy 3200 pickup has NO wiring for brake lights and turn signals, and I'm not quite sure how to get started to install. I did find a switch with two male posts (one a little larger than the other) with an arm that is contacted by the brake pedal. Using sand paper, I cleaned up these contacts and put an ohm-meter to confirm the switch is working. Also, I have a wiring ribbon cable coming out of the sterring column (presumably for the turn signals and horn) but nothing to connect to. Now, I need help with the following: - Where do I find connectors for these two male posts for the brake lights and turn signal ribbon cable? - How do I connect the brake and turn signals together (since they apparently run together to the tail lights? - Did this year vehicle have reverse lights? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

1993 chevy silverado parking lamps go of when i turn on headlights, signal lights flicker when i press on brake.


Yes I would look for a ground circuit problem. I would look at the ground wires for the headlights first. Even run a new ground wire for the tail lights to see if it helps.
Could be a ground connection for the body to frame or body to battery.

No brake lights


First Start with the Stop lights fuse Check and make sure it's good if questionable just replace it. Check to make sure you have power going into the fuse Use a 12V test light or volt meter. If you have power going into the fuse make sure the other side of the fuse has power through the fuse. Next Go to the brake light switch and test for power going into the switch if you have power put your tester on the other wire on the brake light switch and press the brake pedal, If there is power the switch is good and if not the switch is either out of adjustment or bad.
If you have power in and out of the brake light switch with the brake pedal pressed then you have to find the breadk in the wire back to the lights Oh don't forget the bulbs and the grounds for the bulbs.
