Electrical issue

Have stock 66 Mustang with original fuse panel. Once in a while my radio,heater, turn signals will quit working. The lights still work and no bad fuses. If I shut off the engine and restart they come back on. Any ideas?

You should look into re-wiring just for the reliability factor. But sounds like could be the fuse panel itself

Sounds like you are losing power from the ignition switch.
Try to find a diagram that shows the ignition switch wiring and trace the wire that energizes the fuse box.

Re: Electrical issue

I'd replace the ignition switch if it appear's to be the original just to be on the safe side.I have a Video that show's how to replace the switch on my website Classic Ford Mustang Restoration - Classic Mustang Restoration Videos (Powered by ClipBucket) The Doc
