1966 Continental Brake Light Issues

Hi Bill,

Have a problem with power leaving the brake light switch but not getting to the the brake light relay. If I power the output of the relay, I have brake lights. The car has a tilt wheel and the shop manual doesn't show the schematics. My question is the turn signal switch at the bottom of the steering column the only thing between the brake light switch and the brake light relay?

Thank you,

Joe

Greetings Joe -

To answer your question it appears that on a 66 Lincoln the power from the brake light switch goes directly to the brake light relay. The complete circuit is also complicated on a 66 so I believe that a wiring diagram would be very helpful for you. We will ask George at our office to scare up a copy of the brake and turn signal diagram and send it to your email address.

Sincerely,

Bill
