Mywife’s 1976 Midget is having electrical issues. Replaced ignition switch, turn signal switch, emergency flasher switch, wiper switch and fuse box. But turn signals, tachometer, wipers do not work. Any ideas?

If you still have glass fuses then the clips that hold the fuses tend to relax after time.

I think that the third fuse down from the top is not being gripped enough. Squeeze the grips at each end of the fuse so that the fuse is firmly held and you should have a result! Let me know!
Kind regards

Hello Bill,

Check out he 19776 Midget wiring diagrams I've attached. I have a '76. I posted these awhile ago on the Forum, but you may have missed it. I'm the original owner with an original shop manual so I had the diagrams blown up and laminated so I can read and use them more easily. Check out your wiring, and you may find the issue.

Bests,

Richard
