Hi guys, I'm renovating a 76 Ambassador that I'm going to call Bessie (or Dory... Kids will make the final call). Right now, though, name would be inappropriate since she's not much more than the shell. I got new wires run from the 7wire connection in the front to the back and now I have to connect the appropriate wires together. I got everything labeled and I have a general idea on where everything should go but details are stumping me.
I have 4 lights on each side. 1 small, rectangular light on the corner and 3 square lights, the center of the 3 being the backup light. I purchased the light "can" new and it has a bulb with 2 filaments and 2 wires each. I don't have the corner light installed yet. I'm trying to salvage the old ones and failing that, maybe 3D print the replacement because replacements are very expensive.
The corner light: do I connect this to the running light wire? It would only come on when my tow vehicle light is on.
Leftmost of the 3 lights: this is the turn signal light so I can connect to the turn signal/stop wire. But do I connect dimmer of the two filament wire to running light wire so it'll have dim red glow at night? Or do I leave that alone?
Backup light is the only one I'm sure. Connect only to the backup light wire.
Rightmost of the 3 lights: Same deal as the leftmost light?
My vehicle's tail light glow at night so I'm assuming trailer's tail lights have to glow at night (but flash/glow brighter when turning or braking) so that's why I'm asking whether the running lights have to be connected to the tail lights...
This might be a simple question and to be honest, I was just going to muddle through it, but once it gets covered up, it's going to be hard to fix it so I wanted to make sure.
