That link is for a 64 1/2. That system is for a generator. 65 has an alternator. Check for power. Most power comes from the starter solenoid as fuseable links on the battery side of solenoid. Also check your turn signal flasher. :vs_cool:

As already stated Check your fusible link.

This is a wire on the battery side of the solenoid, it has a little flag a few inches from the solenoid stating fusible link.

Another thought: have you checked the wiring inside the steering column for bare spots?
Also check the wiring coming out of the steering column in the engine well, sometimes someone spills BRAKE FLUID on these wires, this will destroy all the insulation on them, causing many faulty signals throughout the light system.

I have seen brake fluid eat the paint off of a car. and bare wires where it spilled.

There is also a circuit breaker built into the headlight switch, that controls the lighting.

Do your dash lights change brightness as you turn stuff of and on? If so, bad ground.

You have two major places your system gets grounded. Ground connection from the battery to the body. And, a ground strap from the engine to the body.

There are little to no relays in that car.

Well hello. I think we live on the same street, by South Walker Elementary. I'm the one with the dobermans, and work on the same street. I have an auto repair shop. Small world.

I still say it's bad grounds. All cars have 3 major grounds. Batt to engine, the big cable, batt to body, and body to engine. Got to have those. Then you have system grounds. Generally they are around the kick panels under the dash and front of the front fenders. You need to measure the voltage at the light sockets or use a test light to see if you have voltage and to see if ground is good.:vs_cool:
