ELECTRICAL

YOUR MUSTANG’S ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

Like most cars, your Mustang’s electrical system consists of a
“primary” and “secondary” system. The “primary” system is
everything related to the engine’s starting and ignition system.
The “secondary”system consists of all wiring for headlights,
tailights, and interior lights. Refer to the wiring diagram books
that we sell. Also, pick up a (Repro) Shop Manual . After
studying the schematics for some time, you’ll easily understand
how everything works. We have grouped this section by specific
areas (starting, charging, interior, headlights, tailights and
wiring looms), to help you find what you may need.

Note: 12 volt negative ground means that your Mustang’s frame
and metal body is the negative side of the electrical system. The
wiring in your car carries the positive side to lights, etc.

BATTERY HINTS

When replacing the battery, wear safety goggles,
and make sure the ignition is in the “off” position.
Keep flame and sparks away. When picking up the
battery, avoid pressing on sides, as it may force

gas and/or acid from the top. Replace clean cable ends, before
installing your new battery. Be sure cables are properly oriented

positive (+) and negative (-). On ‘64-’73 Mustangs, the positive cable is
mounted between the positive battery terminal and solenoid, and is
usually shorter. The negative cable goes from the battery (neg) to the
engine block (ground).

Note: Most “dead” batteries that fail to start on a cold morning, many
times is actually because of dirty battery terminals and cable ends.
