Archive: 1958 Packard Hawk electrical issues, schematics and an Indian Summer bike ride for Annalyn and Ellerie

PackardRelay201107The electrical woes on my dad’s 1958 Packard Hawk continue to dumbfound me. It is obvious from looking at the wiring schematics (archived below the break) that the car has had some rewiring done since tracking issues has been problematic.

I did find one failed relay causing a problem with power windows. Once bypassing the relay, I could get the windows back up again … but that’s not the main issue. I’ll need to do some additional diagnosing.

Also .. I wanted to slip in a great photos of Drew’s girls enjoying the nice November Indian Summer (if that is even a politically correct term anymore???)
