No Electrics


Post by 64 Pan man » Tue Aug 19, 2008 11:21 pm

While riding my 64 FL ALL stock (right down to the Super Eagles), it all of the sudden stopped. I lost all electrics at once. Had to get it towed home last night. Anyone with Any ideas. Battery is fully charged, gas was full. ANY suggestions???

check grounds.

Also make sure the ignition switch is working properly, and is not shorting to the dash.

check the main hot lead from the batt to the term block behind the coil and then from term. block to the ign. switch

I had the wire at the switch break,
riddin along then poof, no more power.... this was about 10 at night on a country road....
kinda dark out there with no lights....LOL
fixed with a jumper from the batt to the hot side of the coil, then road it home...
your lights will come on also.
