#1 S1.5 Instrument Wiring

Post by mikebryan » Fri Sep 13, 2019 12:01 pm

I have a question regarding the dashboard wiring for my 1968 S1.5 OTS.
Starting at the panel light switch, I have Red/Blue to the panel edge lights ( working OK ). Then I have Red/White to the instruments (working OK ). Then the confusing bit for me is a Red/Brown connected to the Panel Resistance ( connected ) then a Red/White to the 4 X PANEL LIGHTS. What the hell are these.???
I have Edge Lights and Instrument Lights only. I guess its me being to stupid to understand the wiring diagram, If anyone could help, would really appreciate it.

Thanks

Mike

Hi Mike
Let me know how you get on because I have to do mine at some point
I think the 4 small gauges are the “daisy chain” one with a spade connector
The one to the main speedo and rpm gauges go into a small diameter wrapped section of the dash loom and appear behind the main gauges
