help identifying dash light
#1
Can anyone tell me what this light (the one lite in the picture) is for?  It comes on when ignition is in the on position, goes out when car starts.  To me it acts like the battery idiot light.
The one that is not lite is for the headlight switch.
thanks
Bob

That was a good guess. The light green with red stripe wire is circuit 904, which runs to the "I" terminal on the voltage regulator from the ignition switch, after running through the warning light.

That is your alternator indicator lamp. It plugs into your dash cluster.

Let me check your shorts!

My dash cluster has the 4 idiot lights, I thought the alternator light was in that circuit.  Yes/No?
thanks

Only in 1971 was the indicator lamp directly wired through the dash connector. Other years, it was hard-wired into the underdash harness.

Thanks, I guess that's why the one bulb holder is missing on the rear of my cluster.
