'63 Safari Front Light Switches

Greetings all,

I recently installed a front 12/110 ceiling light that had been replaced when the AC was put in. I was hoping that one of the two light switches I have on either side of the couch in the front would control the 110, but no luck. Does anyone know what these are for?

Keith

It's been awhile since we had our 63 Safari...could you refresh the brain cavity with a photo?


One is for the outside light next to the door,(12v) the other for the interior, just can't recall which is what,

I'll take a shot tonight. I have one toggle switch above and to the right of the front door that is for the 12v exterior, but then I have a standard light switch under the 2 front lights on either side of couch as you face the front.

OK, here are a couple of pictures of the two light switches that as of now do nothing. I would love to know what they should be for.

Question

Keith,

We did not have the same floor plan, ours was a front twin, curbside goucho.

But I'm sure the switch next to the door is the 12v porch light. and the other is 120v interior.

Have you tried replacing/checking porch bulb?

Bob

Thanks Bob,

All of my interior lights work and have identifiable switches for both 12 and 120 including the exterior light.

The only light that doesn't have a switch that controls it is the 120 side of one of my ceiling lights. I was thinking that one or both of these controlled it, but I can't figure it out.

You may be on to something there though. I have a metal toggle switch (to the right of the front door as you face it from the inside) that today controls the exterior light. I wonder if that got added later, even though it looks older than dirt.

Keith

Keith,

My brain cavity is filling up as we speak, I had almost forgotten about having the dual set up on the old girl, 12v and 120v in all fixtures. So you may be right, the metal toggle IS for the porch, the one by the door is 12v ceiling, the other 120.

Interesting. On the back ceiling light the 12v is on the light and the 120v is next to it with a normal switch. I hadn't thought about those 2 switches being for the 2 different voltages......

The light bulb has come on ...

Maybe?

We have only begun to question those light switches. Not that we are ready to plug The Hot Mess into power yet but this thread will definitely get us headed in the right direction in a few years.

Thanks ROBERT CROSS! You have answered another question for us. And you did it so long ago. No more head scratching on that issue.
