Hey, new member here. I tried signing up a few days ago but had troubles activating so here I am.I am the proud new owner of a (I believe) Fiberfab ’52 TD on a ’71 beetle chassis. Got her up and running and am currently working on wiring. Will be coming back with plenty of questions!September 13, 2013 at 7:12 pm #257685RoyalParticipant
Hi, and welcome! Even though these TDrs are relatively electrically trouble free, they all seem to come with a fair share of electrical problems. Not to worry, once fixed, they stay that way, unlike the Lucas equipped originals.September 13, 2013 at 7:33 pm #257686AnonymousInactive

Well so far going good, blinkers don’t work yet but we are getting there. Gotta get relays and everything too, it was pretty much stripped when I got it..September 15, 2013 at 9:04 pm #257696john barryParticipant

Welcome to the group.trouble with electricals on these things mostly=bad grounds. Find your ground strap(s) and re-attach them clean, then add two more. Then start trouble-shooting.Also: the brake light switch is in the master cylinder. It’s low down and crusty (usually). ANd you probably have a spare already attached. If the brakes aren’t lighting the lamps, switch switches and try again. That worked for me.
