Don't mean to hijack thread, but did you install the gages. Mine are so dim that they are hard to see at nitetime. Yes I cleaned the switch and changed the bulbs.

I installed the gauges and wired them into the original plug so it plugs into the original harness. I changed the bulbs to blue LEDs. Bright lite indicator is way too bright, gonna have to do something with that.

I'm not sure what you ended up doing with Gen light and the resistor.
I recommend you use a standard lamp. The lamp will begin to light(glow) if there is a difference of 2 volts across it. If the alternator voltage is higher it will light or if the battery voltage is higher it will light. The LED is still just a diode. It will only light when forward-biased.

Orange. What color orange is that? Is it possible that it is Plymouth Vitamin C?

The resistor is still in the circuit and the alt light seems to work ok. I guess I'll see. There's a volt meter so the light is basically there for a fan light in case I lose a belt.

The orange is a combination Kirker colors, Bright Orange Metallic, Lemon Drop Pearl and Performance Yellow over buff primer.
