I have a 66 mustang C code coupe I am working that is a hot rod not a concours restoration. Eventually, I plan to replace all the wiring in the car but for now I am just getting the car back to road worthy status.
My fuse box is trash and plan to replace wiring in the entire car, but for now I am going to replace the fuse box with a powered fuse holder with modern fuses.
I purchases this box from Amazon:
Which wire going into the fuse box needs to be used to power the box from the ignition? I moved the blue / red wires for the lights on an independent fuse since it doesn’t actually receive power from the box.
In the stock setup power to the ignition system does not go thru the fuse box. It comes directly off the C (coil) terminal on the ignition switch.
Im not sure I understand what you are doing with your lights but in the stock setup:
Headlights are powered thru the 12A CB in the headlight switch that is connected directly to the battery (does not go thru fuse box).
Parking lights, running lights, side marker lights (68+), brake lights, and horn(s) are powered thru the 15A CB inside the headlight switch that is connected directly to the battery (does not go thru fuse box)
Turn signal lamps and back up lamps are powered thru the 14A ACCY fuse
Instrument cluster lights are powered thru the 2.5A INS ILL fuse which itself is powered from the 15A CB in the headlight switch.
Interior lights are powered thru the 20A DOME fuse
