36 Dodge wiring

Does anyone know where I can download a wiring diagram for a 1936 Dodge Sedan. I am trying to get all of the lights working, but have no idea how the wiring needs to be. Any help would be appreciated.

Is this a restoration or a streetrod? If it is the latter, it probably needs a complete rewire with a modern wiring kit. They are a breeze to install and are well worth the small investment.

Doc here,

I can give you a "Generic" Layout for the lighting system..but it may not match with OEM Dodge..(if it were just to move it or something like that..)

You Can purchase manuals online for that car, just do a google Search, I found a few..Also try the County MAIN (not city) Branch of the library in the reference department..most carry Factory manuals..and if not you CAN ask if they can outsource them for you..(mine does)

The Downshot is usually you must copy them there..bring your change jar..

Doc here,

Here is a "Generic" using relays..

IF your using stock lamps, your going to want the relays, the lights will shine up to 3 times brighter than normal..

If not, use the diagram and wire past the relays.



This will heat up your headlamps..

Do you also need tail and parkers?

Ohm the switch for park, (first detent) to the power wire, that terminal will go to the front park lamps.

Now with the switch full on, ohm the switch for continuity to the power wire, Two should be present, one to the high / low switch..(heads) and the other to the tail lamps.

That will get you a "Basic" legal system.

Doc

Doc here ,

Here is the way Chev has done it for years..



This will work on yours also..I assume you DO NOT have turnsignals so bypass that, and go with the relay set up for heads..the switch for HI/Low is where they will interconnect. If your Switch does not have taps for rear Tails, just interconnect it with front parkers..
