Mustang Headlight Wiring 1964-1978
Though restoring a First Generation or Fox Body Mustang can be a lot of fun for you and other Mustang lovers in your life, the process rarely comes without its fair share of frustrations. In addition to locating the correct OE reproductions, tracing faulty wiring is one of the biggest hassles of restoring a classic Ford Mustang from the ground up. While your Mustang is loaded with important electrical & wiring circuits, the Mustang headlight wiring is arguably the most significant lighting component in the entire car. Your Mustang headlight wiring must be in working conditions at all times in order for your Mustang headlights to properly illuminate to help guide you to your final destination safely.
In many cases, the important wires associated with your Mustang headlights are bound together inside a Mustang headlight wiring harness. A Mustang headlight wiring harness acts as a central hub for your Ford Mustang headlight wiring, and helps connect the specific wires to the corresponding parts around the Mustang engine. The automotive industry has made major strides in the realm of LED lighting over the years, and there is a good chance that your factory Mustang headlight wiring is not compatible with the latest aftermarket upgrades. If you are looking to swap your factory equipment for new headlights, it would be wise to replace your Mustang headlight wiring harness along with them.
While it is obviously important to check on the exterior condition of your Mustang headlights, the bulk of the issues that will arise over the years will be as a result of frayed Mustang headlight wiring. Over time, wires tend to fray, get cut, become brittle, or sustain damage in a number of different ways. Driving around with faulty Mustang headlight wiring is not only putting your visibility at night at risk, but it could also cause major issues for your entire electrical system. If your headlights are repeatedly having issues as a result of damaged Ford Mustang headlight wiring, it would be wise to replace your Mustang headlight wiring harness.
