Model t ford forum 1915 headlight wiring route

I purchased a wiring harness from a fellow club member and started investigating how to install it and keep everything working. I looked at the wiring diagrams posted elsewhere on the site. I did not find any information about integrating the directional signal wiring with the wiring harness. I traced the wires coming from the directional unit and matched them to the diagram. The front light wires go directly to the cowl lights. These are the only wires going to the cowl lights yet they will turn on when the steering wheel switch is turned to the left.

I have an additional wire coming from the directional unit not showing on the wiring diagram. I traced it to the light switch. This must be how the cowl lights work when turned on with the steering wheel switch? The rear light wiring seems to be a mix of a separate wire going to the right tail light and connecting to the harness wiring for the rest.

My other question is regarding the new wiring harness I purchased. All of the diagrams show two wires going to each headlight, my harness has three wires for each light. Do I have the wrong wiring harness?

The cowl lights only have one wire to them, therefor can be used as cowl, or turn, not both unless modified to a two filament socket and bulb. As for the headlights, the harness could be for the earlier headlights with the running light reflector. Find out which two work high and low beams and just use those. You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command! The three wires are for headlamps with low beam, high beam and parking lights in top of reflector cars without cowl lights.

My lights and directional signals work but the wiring is old and looks like potential future problems. Tags: None. I am going to answer "generally" because all wiring is subject to the installer and harness used. Comment Post Cancel. This link shows turns added to a wiring harness.Wired the cowl lights so they are powered from the parking light wire when turned on no bulb in the sockets Had cowl lights in that steering wheel position, high and low beams in their correct position.

Drove the car the other night and no low beam, only cowl and high. Not so fast, now I have cowl lights AND low beans in the cowl light position. I have a vague recollection there was some trick to this in the instructions, but I can't find them now. Does anyone recall this trick? I have rechecked the wiring and the contacts for anything that may be bridging the gaps Last edited by Jackc ;PM.

It sounds like the wire that you found disconnected low beam was put back in the wrong spot. Comment Post Cancel. Thanks Mitch, however there was only one spot available, and it matches the wiring diagram. I don't get it, it all worked well, until I lost the low beams, It acts like you suggested, but for some reason it's picking up the low beams in cowl position Jack this tech thread post shows the only issues that I know about. Jackc Its not in the wiring, it is in the connections of the switch.

I had a similar problem that no matter how I wired it, could not get it to do what I wanted. You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

For what it's worth, we have orig. Thanks Mitch and DaWizard for your input.

I will just have to pull it apart and see what I can see. Switch handle is in the proper position on the steering wheel, so something has moved or the switch itself may have moved somehow when I reattached the low beam wire. You have given me more info to digest. I'll update when I get it figured out. I get low and high beams in their proper switch placement as well.This article describes a procedure for replacing your Model T incandescent headlight bulbs with light emitting diode LED bulbs.

The process involves purchasing LED bulbs and then installing them on your car. The bulbs are not expensive and they are easy to install so the Model T headlights can be converted to LEDs fairly quickly and inexpensively. You first need to order the bulbs.

If you copy this address and paste it in your browser you can then go to the Amazon website and find the bulbs or ones that are similar. If you select the BA15D size, the bulbs will have double contacts on the end and pins on the base which are opposite one another so they will work in the Model T headlight socket.

Some bulbs have offset pins which can be installed in the socket if you file down the contact which does not mate with the socket. I think those have pins which are offset so one of them would have to be filed down. Once you have the bulbs or ahead of time if you want to be ready to install them when they arrive!

Start by removing the headlight rims. This involves pushing in on the rims and then twisting them counterclockwise to remove them from the headlight buckets. After the rims are removed, the Model T bulbs can be removed from their sockets. Next, you need to decide which headlight switch position you want to use to turn on the LED bulbs.

Unlike the high and low beam incandescent bulbs, the LED bulbs have a single beam so they will only come on when the headlight switch is in the chosen position. With the headlight switch off, disconnect the connector at the back of each headlight. Unscrew the collar on the connector. This will expose two small screws on either side. Now turn the headlight switch to the selected position and use a voltmeter or the incandescent bulb to determine which of the two connector screws is the hot one.

Turn the headlight switch off, unscrew the screw on the other side of the connector, and then pull the wire out of the connector. This wire will need to be cut off so that it is not grounded. Otherwise it could cause a short if it is grounded when the headlight switch is in the opposite non LED light position.

The last step in the installation is to connect a ground wire to the headlight socket. Cut two pieces of wire I used 16 gauge about five inches long and strip the ends.Login or Sign Up. Logging in Remember me. Log in. Forgot password or user name? Non registered users have limited site access.

Solder the new harness onto the old one, because the repos are made wrong. Jamey E. Winter projects list keeps getting longer. Jamey, The winter is looong and a lot of projects can get done!

Quick View.At night or in daytime, some modern turn signals are over powered by modern headlights especially when one is driving with their bright lights "ON".

Observing these types of modern close proximity turn signals can become worse in fog or during rain to where oncoming traffic drivers may not readily notice that turn signals were "ON" Some Model A owners for the past 20 years or so have mentioned providing turn signals in their parking lights mounted far behind their headlights, and others mentioned other specific turn signal locations that anyone could imagine possible.

If one installs much brighter newly introduced Model A LED headlights from any manufacturing source, it may be a good idea to observe if one's existing turn signals can easily be noticed at night or during daytime with their Model A LED headlights "ON".

I installed LED turn signals about 12 years ago mounted below, and between horizontal upper and lower bumper railswhich appeared very noticeable and far enough away from original Model A incandescent headlights.

Never a good idea to wait to get "T-Boned" to find out that your turn signals were not very noticeable in conjunction with brighter newly installed Model a LED headlights.

Chauvin ;PM. I think they are made that way to save money by having all the lights in one pod, but it is difficult to notice the turn signal.

I also do not like the super bright projection beam lights on modern cars, and now dislike driving at night and being blinded by oncoming cars and trucks. Next, after they switch their LEDs to "Bright", it is easy to acquire what is sometimes called "night blindness" to where our eyes have difficulty to remain focused on anything.

No doubt today's inspectors in State required Inspection Stations, in all areas of all Statesare not verifying proper headlight alignment like that of a few years ago.

At the rate our Government is headed with wild out-of-control spending and unreasonable debt, maybe we may soon be pulled over and ticked heavily for driving at night in our Model As without new State required night driving Sun Glasses.

Excellent, very good, fair, good enough, poor, etc. Never a bad idea for one to evaluate one's own turn signals in the dark. Chauvin ;AM. First, ask your wife to sit behind the steering wheel of your parked Model A one night in complete darkness; and, 2.

Second, park your modern car about 25 yards in front of your Model A, with your modern car facing the front of your Model A, thus observing your wife in your Model A in the distance; and, 3. Fourth, ask your wife to stick her arm outside of the drivers side Model A side window; and ask your wife to conduct a few of her previously instructed non-electric " Recommended Hand Turn Signals" ; and, 6.

Bill G Model A Lover! Unless I make it a point to go overboard and extend my arm out the window, the arm signals are hardly noticeable, even for someone actually watching for it in broad daylight.

Not even noticeable at night. Now, at night and facing oncoming traffic? I don't think it would be very successful. These days, nobody knows hand signals. In fact, they may think we are sending obscene hand gestures.

That Would Never Be Thought of in : One cloudy afternoon years ago, I remember riding with my Dad and Uncle following an old Mid's car heading home and traveling at about 35 mph on our old local graveled road.
