There is a very large class of people that own 65/66 Mustangs that, as far as I can tell, anyway, have been, for the most part, ignored entirely. They don't really want that 100 pt. show car that is so nice and was soooo expensive that they're afraid to drive it, they also don't want to make their car capable of achieving warp factor three. They just want this car that they dearly love to be able to cruise around smoothly and reliably, without having it dump them out on the side of the road or have it start making weird noises or belching out big clouds of funky-smelling smoke. And I think, truth be told, that this is by far the largest class of Mustang owners. They take their car to some technician when what they actually need is a mechanic, and this, frequently, does not work out very well at all for the owner. They don't want to re-engineer the entire car, they just want someone to fix what broke. These are the people that I am trying help out with this blog. Some problems require a little bit of back and forth, as in, "Try this." "I tried that and it didn't change anything."
" Oh. well, you probably need to try that." " I tried that and it helped, but it still isn't quite right." "Now you need to try this...." If you go to http://www.allfordmustangs.com/ and then go to the classics forums, you will be able to do that with a pretty hefty gathering of some very knowledgeable people that also happen to be very friendly. None of that ridiculous one-upmanship, no flaming or abuse, none of that stuff. Just good, solid advice from people that know what they are talking about.

1966 Mustang wiring diagrams

My car came with the seat belt warning light. I have the warning light working correctly. Replaced the "switch/relay" and all is working correctly. My question is there is a dark green female bullet connector and a light green female bullet as part of the seat belt warning light wiring harness that are not connected to anything. Any idea what these are for?

That's a pretty rare option. What you should have on the harness is a male bullet connector that plugs into the accessory feed at the fuse box. This will have two green wires coming out of it, one going to the seat belt warning lightand the other having a female bullet connector. That one plugs into the green wire coming out of the relay switch thingy, and there will be a short wire with the other female bullet connector flapping in the breeze. The connector that doesn't seem to go to anything is just a continuation of the accessory feed circuit to supply power to some other accessory.
