Warning Lights

I have a 78 Mercury Marquis (400) (did not see a forum especially for the older Mercury).

The circuit board that operates the oil warning light, brake light, etc is bad. Have not been able to locate one, and most of the lights work except for the oil and brake light.

I would like to run a 2 wire socket and have it pop in where the light is now. Does anyone have any idea of a part number for a socket that would fit? I believe this would be the simplest most inexpensive way to deal with this.

Thanks

Re: Warning Lights

I thought the socket was integral with the circuit board.

Thanks for that link - the socket turns and locks into the circuit board - I am thinking that an old style pig tail can be run there if you can get the right size to pop in, then run one wire to hot wire, the other to oil sending unit.

Thanks again.

They had several circuit boards but none for the 78 Marquis.

Re: Warning Lights

Should be the same as an LTD I'd think.

You may be right. I will check it.

Re: Warning Lights

Missed bidding on that one but it did confirm what you said, that it fits more years than 78. There is another for sale but appears that it does not have the circuit board. Thank you for the help.

Re: Warning Lights

I do see another circuit board from the same seller that will work - looks like they are parting out several old Fords.
