  • Electrical: Brake Lights

    Good Morning,
    Last week I was cleaning my 64 Wagonaire with the drivers door open, dome light was on. Then the dome light went out, checked the bulb, it's ok. Then I checked for brake lights, none, tail and blinker lights work. The brake light switch is ok. Is there a inline fuse? The steering column has a small block on it, it has 3,or 4 wires going in or out, could that be the fuse block and could that be shot? Don't want to drive her without brake lights. Any info will be helpful. Steve

    There is no "fuse block" on Studebakers.

    Check the brake light switch, which is hydraulically operated and is on the brake line plumbing.

      Try a light pressure crimp around the wire barrel contacts at the brake light switch in order to make tighter contact with the switch terminals.

        On a '63 there is a fuse block with (I think) two fuses and the turn signal flasher. Under the dash hear the steering column and hard to see if you haven't found it before.
