Your 1953, 1954, 1955 Corvette was meant to be seen. It?s obvious that every time you pull into a gas station or get a crowd at the local car show, your baby really turns heads. Well, the same is true when driving at night. However, you?re finding that your is not turning heads, because no one sees you coming! Not only is having a faulty headlight switch deterring positive attention, but it is dangerous when driving at night. Over the years, these switches deteriorate leading to bad rheostats or outright failure. Symptoms that your may exhibit include a burning electrical smell from your dash when your headlights are on, inability to dim or adjust your instrument panel lights, faulty movement of the mechanical parts, or flickering of the lights. Even though your headlight switch is fairly simple to replace, we always recommend consulting your service shop manual. First, you will need to access the back of the switch where you will find a small 1/4 inch button. Pull the knob while simultaneously pressing the little button. Your headlight knob should then come out. Next, unscrew the round nut that holds the switch to the dash. Pull the switch out from behind the dash and unplug it from the harness. Then, just reverse the actions to re-install. It?s that easy. Here at the Eckler?s Corvette, we always strive to bring you the best in high quality electrical components. After all, your baby deserves the best. While you may or may not actually need to change your vintage car?s earlier 6-volt battery system, the 12-volt charging systems established themselves well in later years, becoming the industry standard in 1955. While the increase in horsepower is great, the 12-volt system can be especially beneficial if you?re having trouble starting your vehicle. The 12-volt system has superior compression ratios over the 6-volt, helping start your car when the engine is hot due to increased cranking power. 12-volt systems are also a necessity for many later accessories such as certain radios, air conditioning or halogen headlights, which cannot be run on 6-volt battery systems simply because they don?t have the power to run such accessories.
