I have a pretty good grasp on the electrical layout of my '66, but one plug with two wires has me confused

I think it is a seat belt warning indicator switch plug, but the wire colors don't match up with my wiring diagrams. The colors of the wires on my car are white/violet and blue with no additional stripe. The wiring diagram shows that the seat belt warning switch plug wires should be green and violet with no additional stripes. The plug is odd shaped with blade type recepticles at 90 degree angles to one another, similar to the stoplight switch plug, but not entirely retangular.

Is this something other than the seat belt warning indicator plug, is my wiring diagram wrong, is my car odd in this respect?

If this is a seat belt warning indicator plug, where can I get a switch, are the reproduced?

If pictures are worth a thousand words, then bla,bla,bl....

It could be possible. I cannot find it in my diagram either.
I've taken a few wiring harnesses in & out and have never
seen that b-4.
Could it be possible that you have a late 66 or an early 66?

No telling, this car is a complete mystery, no data plate, no buck tags, build sheets, nothing. At least it is optioned and colored the way I like it. I haven't really done a thurough search for date codes since it has such a mixed history. Thanks for your input.

See pics posted under my original thread

Hi, I don't know how much different they are but that looks like the turn signal flasher wire in my 67. John

It kind of does, but in the '66 the flasher is located behind the glove box off of the emergency flasher switch and uses an orange/yellow and blue wires.

I don't know what the connector is, but I can say that Ford didn't always stick to the same wiring color schemes. I'm replacing my old harness with a NOS one made in the '80s and there are some color differences that don't show up on my original or the wiring diagram. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Wait a minute there, partner, the E flasher has it's own flasher can. The turn signal canister is located on your driverside fresh air vent housing (between it and the firewall) mounted on a clip. The wire colors don't sound right though. Turn sig is blue and orange yellow. I have a '66 harness that had red white and white red for the E flasher wiring - not the same with the wiring diagram.

Okay, just looked at seat belt indicator harness I've harvested from a '66 and the connector is the same shape, but it's bleck. The wires are green and violet. I wonder what the optional brake light indicator wiring were? I don't recall they used a big ol' connector like that though. What/where is the wiring connected to?

So... I'm still in the dark.

It does look like a turn signal flasher connector I've had on some of my other stangs, but my '66 turn signal flasher is located on the drivers side and has a light blue wire and an orange wire with separate connectors. Just went out to the car and verified this. I've got the seat belt warning light, but did not see this type connector anywhere under the dash??

The seat belt warning light connector is plugged into the skinny tungsen relay unit mounted on the clutch/brake pedal support, passenger side if IIRC. It's attached by a single self tapping bolt.

Your right about the E-flasher having it's own flasher, and it is the one behind the glove box, The old harness was butchered and the eflasher was being used for the turn signal only, the wire colors are the same. I just had a brain fart.

Thanks for setting me straight.
