Hi folks, my '75 shift indicator light is messed up. It's off when the car and lights are off; on when the lights are on but the car is off; both are correct.
Start the car and it is on when the car is on but the lights are off and off when the car is on and the lights are on. Both are wrong!
I had the console apart the other day to do some work on the HVAC controls; the light had been working correctly before that. What have I messed up? The HVAC and lighter socket lights are working correctly as are all other dash and exterior lights. HELP!
OK, this is weird. Took the car to a cruze night tonight about 30 minutes from home. It was dark when it was time to come home. Start the car, turn the lights on and the indicator light comes on as it should. Get home, turn the lights out with the car still running and the indicator light goes out as it should. My wife is starting to call the car "Christine" as she's sure it's posessed. I'm just glad it fixed itself.
It's doing it again... Took the Vette for a long run out of town the other night. Getting dark on way home and turned on the lights and noticed the the shift light is out again and on when the lights are off, etc, etc.
OK, took the shift plate off tonight and noticed that there was a stray black ground wire. Turned the key on and the light came on. Touched the ground wire to the back of the metal shift surround plate and the light went out. Turned on the lights and the light came on. So...it's a ground problem like I was starting to suspect. I must of unscrewed it when I was working in there. A lot of the dash lights in these cars use the metal trim plates for a ground. Good to remember.
