Probably either a bad ground (broken wire, rust) or a bad headlight switch. The brake light circuit goes from the stop switch (Located up above the brake pedal) through the headlight switch, through the light bulbs to ground. The tail light circuit goes through the headlight switch, through the bulbs and to ground. The only things that are in common are the headlight switch (Is this the switch you replaced?) and ground.
Not much, but hope this helps.

SOURCE: Replacing the ignition switch in a 96 ford mustang cobra svt

Follow these steps carefully. this will help you achieve this replacement.



  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the terminal on the battery. Remove the upper and lower steering column covers by unscrewing them.

  2. Remove the steering wheel by lifting off the center cover, disconnecting the horn wire and removing the retaining nut and washer. Make a mark on the steering wheel spline and the wheel itself so you can line it back up precisely. Pull the steering wheel straight back to remove from the shaft.

  3. Take off windshield wiper and turn signal switches by pulling them off as you did the steering wheel and disconnect the wiring. Slide the spacer sleeve off of the steering column.

  4. Unscrew the ignition switch mounting screws. Pull out the ignition switch. Disconnect the wiring connector from back of the ignition switch. Simply loosen the tabs and pull it out.

  5. Insert your key into the ignition. Turn the ignition switch to the locked position. Depress the retaining pin with a small screwdriver and turn the key to the Off position to free the cylinder. Once it is free, turn the key to lock position and remove the key and key cylinder.

  6. Install your old key cylinder into the new ignition switch assembly. Make sure the contacts in the cylinder and assembly line up. Reattach wiring to ignition switch, slide it into place, screw in mounting screws and reassemble steering wheel and switches.

What causes my 1965 4 speed mustang to backfire and sometimes stall?


backfiring is ignition of the fuel mixture while an inlet valve is still open. Check firing order as there may be a HT lead crossed . If it backfires then the mixture is burnt in the inlet manifold so there is nothing left for the cylinders so it will stall. If you are running holley carby then check the power valve for a hole in the diaphram Check for vacuum leaks. check ignition timing is correct and not too far advanced. if the HT leads are touching each other this will induce a spark in the wrong cylinder --use lead spacers from an auto spares shop

Need to know the fuse sizes for a 65 mustang


Headlight switch has a built in circuit breaker (auto reset). Same with wiper.
ACCY (top fuse) is 14A.
HTR (left) is 14A
INST LT (center) is 2.5A
DOME (right) is 7.5A
CIG LTR (bottom is 14A)

Interior options (like radio and A/C) run off the stud on the back of the ignition switch and are separately fused (inline).

1965 falcon sedan resistor


Ignition ballast resistor is usually mounted on the firewall near the back of the engine. It's white, rectangular, and has a wire connector on each end. It's function is to limit primary coil current during engine running. The ballast is bypassed during starting so you get a higher spark voltage. If you remove the ballast, you will burn out your coil.

1965 ford mustang...rear turn signals, rear emerg flashers & brake lights not working.


Are the rear bulbs OK?
Is the ground good at the rear?are the sockets good?
Are there tail lights and a license plate light?then the ground is OK.
All the things that you say do not work go through the signal light switch....it may need replacing.
First make sure the bulbs and fuses are OK and power is getting to the signal light switch and to the brake light switch.
Nice car!

Wire on ignition switch is hot to touch. will not


Possible ignition switch is not able to carry over 12 volts to starter solenoid on the wall. Measure using voltmeter, power coming in to small wire on starter solenoid. Should read battery voltage. If not, ignition switch may be shorting out.

BAD HEAD LIGHT SWITCH FOR 1965 FORD MUSTANG


At the bottom of the switch under the dash is a "button" that you push and this will release the knob and shaft from the switch itself. After the knob/shaft is removed, simply unscrew the switch from the dash and unplug the pigtail from the switch. Installation is the reverse of removal.
