Reader’s Question:
I recently bought a nice “driver” ’66 four-speed coupe, and my backup lights don’t work. Replacing the bulbs didn’t help, and the bulb sockets don’t show any  power when it’s in reverse with the ignition on. Where is the switch and wiring? I see an unused, open two-wire connector hanging from the harness that runs across the firewall – does that have anything to do with the backup lights?
