I had to evacuate my home last week in a hurry because of two approaching wild fires, So I took the 72 Ranchero GT 4 speed Cobra Jet and left the others behind and hoped for the best. I was able to return home yesterday and found that all was fine , no damage to home or cars. On my return trip home from the Central Coast of California which is about a 5 to 6 hour drive to my home in the Mountains of San Bernardino the lights on the car started acting up after being on for 4 hours. First the dash lights started to flicker, then the tail lights. I pulled over and searched for a loose wire or a bad ground but I was unable to find one. I did notice that the back side of the interior switch to the lights was very hot, and I am wondering if this is normal after driving for four hours with the lights on and could it being so hot have been the cause of the lights going out?
