Road Lamps
« on: April 17, 2019 - 02:51:38 pm »
Im about to hook up my road lamps but run in to a problem. I got power coming to the toggle switch and power going out both wires are light green. They run up to the drivers side where agrommet pops threw the firewall. I got no power at the wire under the hood. Its hard to see under the dash but is ther another plug in up there. I got the wiring diagram but cant figure it out Thanks DirksCuda

You need to trace the wire from the switch out to the engine compartment to be sure you are dealing with the correct wire.

here is a picture of the whole wiring harness for road lamps.

As you can see there is a relay and a couple of junctions.

Thanks for the pic 67vertman. It looks like someone put the accessory and road lamp wire threw my firewall backwards. I will have to pull it back threw and have a look. Thanks again  DirksCuda

Found this old thread, pretty sure Cuda and Challenger would be the same...
