DAMN wiring deamons!

OK, here's one for you wiring guys...

My highbeam indicator is always on regardless of whether or not the headlights are on or not. The light stays on even if I unplug the indicator switch and pull the headlight fuses (or even all the fuses). The only time they go out is if I unplug BOTH headlight plugs at the headlight. This got worse today when this short made the dash clock die... Anyone got any ideas where I should begin?

Also, I'm curious if pre and post 88.5 wiring harness are the same... I can't remember if they are or not...


My brain is full - can I go home now?

Re: DAMN wiring deamons!

Pauly, Can't give you a direct answer, but if it will help and if I have one left, I have the wiring diagram enlarged to poster size so even old folks like me can see them........ If you want it I'll check to see that I actually have one left and send it to you......

Re: DAMN wiring deamons!

Oops, I forgot to mention that I have a short finder and if you want to borrow it, you are more than welcome.....

I would check the ground on the column as well as the combo switch. The FSM has the test procedure to check if it's functioning as it should.......

Check the grounds in the harness at the headlights , that should fix it .

Re: DAMN wiring deamons!

I checked the grounds at the front. That's doesn't seem to be the problem...

Re: DAMN wiring deamons!

I took my wiring diagram from the FSM down to the local copy shop and had them enlarge it to blueprint size... Sure makes it a TON easier to read and follow... only cost me 2 or 3 bucks too...

Re: DAMN wiring deamons!

capn, from the looks of the wiring harness, its just 2 wires for that light. It connects to the red wire on for the high beam and then goes to ground thru a fuse. sound like you got a shorted wire somewhere in line.

Re: DAMN wiring deamons!

Yup, pretty straight forward. I HATE wiring deamons so I'm just going to swap out the entire harness on Sunday. I've done this enough that it'll only take me about 4 hours...

Capn, I use to love seeing them come in the shop. That meant payday usally was going to be very good that week.
