maybe fusable link? my 69 lost interior lights,windows,door locks,brake lights...after checking fuses and more fuses and jumping fuses still nothing. finally after searching around on the internet for a wiring schematic I figured out where the fusable link was and it was all melted up.

The 68 i just bought had electrical issues with the blinkers ,tailights , brake lights etc. the previous owner had jerry rigged a switch for the blinkers on the column, what a mess ! Anyway i bought a new switch for the blinkers and installed it , what a job fixing all the cobbed up wires and such. Well after it was installed we still had the same issue , after hours of trying this and that we finally found the problem. There was a loose ground on the front passenger blinker !! We tightened that up and bingo everything worked, amazing that one ground could cause all that trouble ! check all connections and make sure they are clean and tight !
