Wiring for a 47 Fog Lights
#1
Home away from home

I had wondered what this wire that was run with the wire bundle, I think I know now. I'm guessing it was a Dealer installation of Fog Lights. Although there are no Fog Lights on the car now, but two holes for mounting and the wires go in that general direction. I will post the photos and let you decide if you agree or not. The last photo is a one wire to a two wire connection. I don't know what the square hole was use for, maybe to help mount it so it wouldn't be dangling in the air. I'm guessing Howard probably has the Packard installation sheet for this modification.
There is a Fog Light Switch in the dash but I didn't want to go inside and check the wires there, for fear of snakes.

You are probably correct in the theory the wire is for fog lites
.
I don't have an install sheet specific to fog lites but do have the 42 accessory diagram. Since the 21st series was almost identical to the 42s I expect the same diagram was still used on postwar Clipper models.

ptv, only when sitting in tall grass!
In that first picture they used a nice knot around the bundle after coming through the Firewall. I'm now wondering about the other single wire coming down, it looks like it's for the switch for the Reverse, power maybe? Since it has the Electromatic Clutch and Overdrive.

If you have dealer installed backup lights the installer would have needed to bring out a power wire from the headlight switch.

EC and OD wiring should be part of the main loom and there would only be 1 lone wire exiting the loom and going to the direct speed switch. Don't remember where that exited.

Here is a copy of the factory installation instructions for 21st Series Fog lights. I had meant to post this on the site previously but it's a bit too big to scan so took a photo instead.

Finally made it out to look if it might have had a Backup Light but the panel is to far gone. Maybe after it cools down I might look under the car and see if the wire is still there.
