I looked at several, all showed the same thing. They get a little corroded over the years. Your new radio probably has an inline fuse anyway. If you really really need to replace it, I can sell you one, but you'll have to splice a number of wires and put everything back together again. He also answers questions and helps people here. You can't, and you probably don't need to. Looks like you need to pull the dash and get to everything and maybe send to painless and get rebuilt before the car burns to the ground.
My tach doesn't work, does this look normal. I took a few pics of my owners manual so you can see where the accessory terminal is located and the fuse sizes. You just have to keep eliminating the possibilities. When I replace with a new fuse it blows again when I turn on the lights. It also looks like someone rattle can sprayed it, why I don't know.
Once again, I'm so impressed with the depth of knowledge and understanding of these vintage mustangs that folks on this Forum have. Mike A good wasy to narrow the problem down is to turn on your lights after you uplug the new radio from the old wiring harness to see if you still blow a fuse. Could one of you experts help me? There can be corrosion there and that can cause a bad conection. I'm restoring a 1970 mustang coupe that is having some electrical problems. We just links any topics about 1972 Mustang Fuse Box Diagram to many other sites out there. Brake lights, turn signals, dash panel and gauge lights still don't work and I have no idea where to look.
If you need to remove any file or want to see the images, please contact original image uploader or browse out there. Regardless, I will pull the radio in the morning and draw the power directly from the fuse box. Bad grounds and bad add on electrical is what burns these cars for sure. Regardless, I will pull the radio in the morning and draw the power directly from the fuse box. Hi Guys, once again resorting to you experts. Besides a bad bulb thats always been the number one reason my turn signals have not worked.
Thanks, Mike Since the same fuse supplies the radio, it may be your new radio is drawing to many amps for that fuse if you used the original radio wiring harness for your power to the new radio. Posted on Mar 04, 2009 This is the only diagram I could find for tail-lamps. Wouldn't the radio have to be on to draw the excess amps? Many kit options can give you additional electrical capacity for adding modern components to your Mustang as well. Its the switch that the handle u move to turn the turn signals on and off. Good luck and let us know if you get them going. Now I know I'm dealing with the correct fuse.
At the bottom of this panel are two plastic 'twist screws'. Headlights normal and bright and tail lights work. When I turned on the lights I guess that 4A fuse blew. The 7123 backside of the fusebox is stuffed with wires and it is a major pain to get the green connector box back to the back side without breaking off one of the three retaining posts. One bad bulb will cause the others not to work , normally one side of the car. The fuse box sits behind a panel where the steering column and instrument panel meet. It could be a bulb.
Doubt painless wiring would do anything for our cars DonDon, That was a brain void for me. I put it all back to together, also put in a custom autosound radio and buttoned it up. What is the yellow wire? The brown color wire is voltage for tail lamps. Mostly left and right sides of the car is on a different circuits. I think you should be getting a little over 12 volts at the fuse box. Is the electrical system in your Mustang working correctly? But its a bigger jpb , a pain.
I had the center dash section out before I discovered this problem and the 2 lights for the 3 gauges were working when I switched on the lights. I meant Midlife I am boxing one up to send myself, lol. The fuse box is located on the passenger side underneath the dashboard. So make sure its not a bulb or a fuse first and make sure ur useing the right amp fuse. If not, your battery is not fully charged. Once again, I'm so impressed with the depth of knowledge and understanding of these vintage mustangs that folks on this Forum have. Hopefully someone can help me out.
