LIGHT UP THAT SHIFT KNOB

8 posts in this topic

In looking for my high beam indicator lens we realized either my Windsor does not have one or it is one that uses one of the "turn indicator" lights for the high beam. I wanted both turn signal indicators to work as normal so I thought, why not have the shift knob glow when using the high beam. It's an easy DIY job. We are running the wires from the high beam switch that normally would go to the instrument panel light, up the steering column and thru the hollow shift lever. Connecting it to a low mcd LED. The result is a nice low glow that does not transmit thru the side. So it doesn't blind you. Only the ribs reflect the light and the dome in the center. So if anyone wants a little something different this is small easy fix and doesn't hurt the authenticity of a great old car. You can use for whatever kind of use you want. Even your alarm warning light.

Why do you post later unrelated Chrysler items like this under Chrysler and DeSoto Airflow parts? These have nothing to do with Airflow!!! Airflows were made only from 1934-1937!!!

I was in the thought that it was Chrysler and Desoto airflow. I guess I didn't see the Chrysler only section. My bad. Maybe the moderators can move the threads to the correct Chrysler area.

That looks like a 1946-48 DeSoto Shift knob.

The factory Chrysler knob has a red crown in the end of it.

I have that on my cowl vent knob. Seems there are a few variations along the way. My inside vent knob was different as well as my lighter. It works for me

This thread has been moved to the correct section: Chrysler products. Now if the admin could please eliminate this thread. Thanx and sorry for my mistake. Didn't mean to offend someone
