I completed total rewire of my 1980 Scamp
today. I knew little about electrical
, so it was a lesson in self-study/self-help. I replaced taillights and marker lights
, tore out all old wiring (see before photos-whatta mess!) and ran a new 7-wire cable from the new front terminal block to the rear. I added a new fuse panel (12 connections...a bit overkill).
I plugged in to my TV and the only had one problem. The left directional stayed on with the TV plugged in, worked OK on TV when I disconnected, so I figure I have a short in that taillight.
Only the results (new lights) will show for my two months of work, but the satisfaction is awesome? I diagramed everything for reference/troubleshooting.
