John,

What connector are you referring to as the Secondary Connector?

If you can take a picture of it, I may have a spare connector here.   I throw nothing out.

BUT, melted electrical parts are of great concern, as there should not be such heat to melt stuff.

Are you running standard headlights, or high-output ones?, as in high current draw.

You may have to do what i do, and install relays, so that the switches are just that, and not high current areas.

Bruce. :devil:

Hi Bruce - no, they didnt work.
On closer inspection of the second connector - the first is on the dipper switch - I can see that one side of the connector has melted plastic. Obviously has failed. Of course, its the connector quite hard to get to. I have some 20A blocks and will replace that connector. But it will kill my back to be under the front seat working 'up'.

G'day John,

Firstly, does your car have Auto-headlight dimming?

Plus, now you are back home, do the lights dip now? using the Dip Switch? or do you have to manually operate the wiring connections with the dip switch removed?

The wiring isn't too hard to trace, if you can get the headlight switch out, and use a multimeter to check.

Electrical - Vacuum - Instruments - Heaters - A/C / 79 CoupeDeVille dipper switch

Hi guys:
Coming back from Mudgee in May, high beam failed because the dipper switch didn't. Dip that is.
Ive finally had time to pull it out and look at it - and it dips fine. I don't think its the connection at the dipper, its the connection further up the loom - which is hard to get to of course - which seems to have a strange triple system with the central one (yellow) the provider of power, and the other two on either side high or low beam.

I think I need a new connector, if anyone has an old loom. Of course, I can cut it all off and do a direct connection with solder - any comments or advice welcome?

G'day Robert,

You can still run a newish double terminal speaker with a one wire setting.   Just put the wire on the + terminal, and then ground the - terminal to one of the speaker attaching screws.

I have used 4 Ohm speakers in old systems many times with no known problems, but the best sound reproduction will be from a 10 Ohm one.   What the difference is, I wouldn't have a clue, as I am not a radio person.   Just turn them on, and select a station, and listen.

Bruce. :devil:

Do you have the Shop Manual?   As the wiring diagram will show if it is a one wire speaker or not.
