I was wondering if anyone has any clue where(if there is a place)I can get the map compartment light bracket for a 66 full console? Also thanks for the replies to my other posts. I will try to use the engine in my car and see what happens(if/when I get that far)

Before I put AC in my 65 I had a full console that was missing the back panel. I made a new one out of sheetmetal and used a socket out of my scrap wire box. It worked ok.

Okay, how did you make an ordinary socket work? The way I understood it, the original socket had a "switch" type arm on it that activated the light. If I can make a regular socket work, how???? Thanks,Bob

NAPA carries a large assortment of universal sockets in their Balkamp line. I have used them many times to replace a disscontinued one. Alex

Got back here by mistake, but anyway-you will need to get a dash to console feed. It is a harness that will hook up your dash harness on one end and the console on the other. The socket had a single wire with a male end plugged into the harness that has an existing female plug to accept it. Hope that this is clear. Virginia Mustang sells it for 21.95. It is pricey, but necessary. Their part no. is WG-111 Most of the larger Mustang parts stores should have it.

Bob,
I'll try to do this from memory while I'm sitting here at work, forgive me if I screw up. The light socket is a one wire, hot, type. When the front door of the console is opened up it made contact with a strip of metal that was attached to the socket, and instant ground, the light would come on. Close the door and the light would go off. The ground actually came from the springs on the door which had a ground wire attached to it. I'll check for sure when I get home.

Mike

Thanks,Mike! I was wondering if/how I can use
a regular socket as the original is not there and I would like to "rig" something. I do have the harnesses I need, just the original socket on my console is missing.
