Torino Electrical Woes

Hey people!

In my 1972 Gran Torino, weird stuff has been happening. The past few years when I have my driving lights on, all of a sudden my dash lights would go out, as with the horn, tail lights, side marker lights and front parking lights.

The interior light would still work as with my headlights and brake lights. 30 seconds later the driving lights and dash lights would "click" back on. Then it would repeat every minute --- "clicking" off. Then back on... doesn't seem to ever end.

I thought it was my horn shorting out, and I took that apart. Wasn't that.

So what can it be ? It only does this when engine is warmed up (which is the weird part). or so it seems.

Remember this only affects the: dash lights, horn, & parking lights.

Thanks in advance mates.
Poofy
