Thread: Russ Thompson Turn Signal wiring

  1. #81
    So the extra green wire and the extra grey wire from each bundle go to the signal indicator wire on the right side of the distribution block?

    You are making me realize how quickly I forgot all this stuff!
    I was not clear at all in that last description.
    The indicators are circled in blue on this diagram, but in our case, they actually go through the Ron Francis harness before they reach the actual dash lights.
    So all you really need to do is have all 3 of those wires attach to the same point on the distribution block


    the wires on the right side of the distribution block at that location will come from the Russ Thompson turn signal.

    Ha ha. Happy to help. Just gives me even more respect for guys like edwardb an Kleiner who seem to be able to rattle this stuff off like they just did it yesterday.
    I really found this wiring to be the most difficult part of the whole build, so it sounds like you are in the homestretch.

    I’m almost there. On the left side of the diagram in between the two RF connectors. It says “to headlight switch feed 2” Is that a wire from Ron Francis or do I need to make that? If I need to make it where does it go to once it leaves the Distribution block. I’m using the factory five head light switch from the complete kit.

    Thanks again

    It's located at the headlight switch plug from the RF harness. Just tie into it and you'll be fine.

    I have the turn signal part of the switch figured out...I think. Can someone share with me a wiring diagram for using the momentary button for the horn including the relay?

    Thanks, Joel

    Sorry to keep beating an issue which for most people I assume is a very elementary electrical solution. I am trying to determine how to use the momentary button on the Russ Thompson turn signal switch to operate my horns. A relay is recommended in this circuit which I understand. However, in looking at the schematic and my fuse panel, a "horn relay" already exists there. My question is do I need an additional relay or is the one in the fuse panel sufficient? If it is sufficient it seems that I can simply connect the two, small black wires from the momentary button to the dash harness horn leads. Correct?

    Yep. That would be OK. The RF harness has the necessary relay on the horn circuit.
