Wiring Diagram, U.S Version

Lane Russell has received quite a few emails asking for the correct wiring diagram for the one year only ’67 Beetle. Illustrated above is the VW 1500 sedan and convertible (U.S. version) from August 1966 to July 1967 in all its glory.

You can download it in a much larger format as well.

Hello, I'm Eric. I started Air-Cooled Artifacts (previously, 1967beetle.com and Lane Russell). I drive a '67 Beetle daily and love to share vintage Volkswagen stories with the world.

  1. Eric- The wiring diagram is greatly appreciated…and timely! ;->

    1. You’re welcome!

    Ahhh! Looks like a page from the famous Bentley manual!

  3. What would be the difference between this US version and the UK version for the 1500 sedan?

    1. Hello, Jack…I did a quick search but could find no “European” Wiring Diagram. I’m assuming (a dangerous thing to do) that the US and European Diagrams would be the same–for all 12 Volt 1967 Beetles. However, for the 6 Volt 1967 Beetles, there would be variances–ex. location of the 6 Volt Voltage Regulator. I wonder if there are European Repair Manuals in Europe. I apologize for not having better information for you! jay

    2. Jack…Post your question in the Comment Section of this Article: https://1967beetle.com/winkle/ I think that Todd can respond better to your question. jay

    I used this today to troubleshoot my parking lights,(all of them had ceased to function). It was a very good guide, but mine were wired slightly different. Instead of the front parking lights being on the green wire off the 30 terminal on light switch (which is un-fused!) They piggy backed on top the two fuses for the R/L rear parking lights,which makes perfect sense. Why have one fused, and one un-fused set of parking lights?. The Green wire was still in place, but nothing was hooked to it. Looking at my fuse box set-up, this appears to be factory. The double spade terminals that are used are one piece and built into the fuse box. It’s possible this is later year fuse box, but it looks original. My root problem, of all things were BOTH fuses had corrosion on the tips and were making poor contact. A little 400 grit sand paper cleaned them right up.

    1. Hello, James–I am happy to hear that you persisted until you found the problem. If only “Herr Schmidt” were here to tell us how these cars came wired off his assembly line! We never will discover all of the ins and outs of these cars–bearing in
      mind that we are speaking about only one year–the ’67s. To be an owner of a ’67, one must love mysteries! LOL jay
