  • Wiring a stop light switch on 66 Cruiser

    One of our club members posed this question to me. I am not great at wiring. Can anyone help him?

    I am in the process of making my 66 Cruiser road-worthy. My daughter told me when I was backing down the driveway that my brake lights weren't working. I checked under the hood and noticed that the two wires going to the brake light switch were missing and I can't find "hide nor hair" of them anywhere under the hood (don't know why I never noticed before). I also checked to see if someone had installed a pedal activated switch since the later Larks had a mounting plate on the steering column but there was no trace of that either. Can you tell me where the two wires going to the fluid switch originate. I would appreciate any help that you can provide.
    Thanks for your time,

    I don't know if there is any difference with a '66, but there is an excellent color copy of a '64 wiring diagram at

    There is a red wire from the fuse to the switch, and then a red/white from the switch to the turn signal switch.

    Maybe this will help.
