Thanks already have that !! I just rewired the new connector the same as the old one and everything works, but still confused on what wires are actually for what circuits? Colors are all different, but look factory?

Thanks for reply. Wayne

I found this but they give no indication of the time period it covers.
The other thing is get a copy of the 1964 Pontiac Service manual.

Thanks for info! I wired the new connector exactly like the old burned out one and plugged into the original headlight switch and everything works! ( at least for now )
I'll be taking it on an evening ride to see if it stands up.
Again Thanks for your help !! I Love this car !! Wayne
