    Hey I'm looking for an automatic headlight dimmer for a 1964 Imperial or similar years. Please let me know if you have one and the wiring harness that goes to it. Thank you!

    I'll take it! Do you use PayPal? And just see what it's connected to as you disconnect it. I'm hoping it's just a wire you can plug into the dimmer switch.

    I do not have PP.
    FYI im very slow in pulling parts lately as I have a lot of life things happening at this time.
    I will see what it takes remove and what is all with it.
    If it's easy no problem. If it's difficult it may take me bit to get to it all.

    Hey that's okay! I completely understand! Especially with the holidays coming up and oh how I know things are on an Imperial lol it's never simple or easy!

    How would you like me to pay? I'm just excited to actually find one! I have a 1964 Imperial Crown Coupe that I've been restoring and It's a feature I've always wanted!

    Thank you,
    Brent

    I believe there are a couple nuts holding it to the top of the dash, which you have to get to from underneath.

    There's also an amplifier which should be attached to the bottom rail of the dash, probably to the right of the steering column.

    The dimmer switch is special for the auto dimming system, plus there may be a separate relay too. The relay was added in the mid-sixties, so '64 could go either way.

    The wiring harness from the eye plugs into the amplifier, so you need to find that first and pull the plug so that you can feed the wires up through the hole in the dash.

    I think the power harness for the amplifier is separate from the main dash harness, and you can remove the entire system without cutting anything, but I could be wrong on this.
