On my 1955 Belair, I unplugged the wires from the headlight switch. I believe this to be the original style switch with a small fuse on it towards the back. There are seven wires, each with their own single plug, not one big plug like cars of today. Of course I didn't think to contort my head and neck to take a look under the dash before I did this thinking it would be marked with "BAT" for battery, maybe “H” for headlight and so on. To my surprise there were no markings at all, just the terminals. I have the wiring diagram for the car but I have searched the internet for two nights now trying to find an image or schematic of my headlight switch showing each terminal and function. I noticed two of the terminals are “protected”, more than one terminal becomes hot when the knob is pulled to the first position (park lights), and one additional terminal becomes hot when pulled to the full on position, (headlights). I tried the local auto parts store to no avail
have the same problem?
