|Era appropriate amirite|
So, that wasn't really necessary but it really spruces the truck up. Next I felt that I needed to knock at least something off the to do list. I had ordered a new blinker/headlight control stick and that finally came in last week. It doesn't have cruise control, but who even cares about cruise on a 5 speed anyway? I replaced the switch and the interior lights work a crapton better, several of the idiot lights that didn't work before work now, and the best thing is that dim/bright work. One of the previous owners had done something weird with the headlights and made this odd janky wire going across the front of the truck to the passenger side to power that headlight. Dim didn't work at all so the lights were just on bright always, much to the chagrin of my fellow drivers. After installing the new switch I began working through the wiring and eventually got everything sorted so that bright is bright and dim is dim. For a while one light would be bright and the other dim because he had wired the passenger lights up wrong during his janky expedition to do whatever the crap he was trying to do. After undoing all of his jank the lights worked just the same as they did before, so I really have no idea what he was trying to accomplish.
|that blue wire is the one that goes to the driver side. There's supposed to be a plug here instead of just 3 wires stuck to the headlight.|
