No, just the little green light. The light has two wires. One is grounded through the pressure switch and the power feed is shared with the fuel gauge.

Jim,
My hands operate my fingers typing and my brain doesn't fully engage. I leave out words and misspell. (now I have auto correct)

What I meant to type was: what is the location the factory hooked the heater up to. (MDthe finger smiley)
Thank you for the directions.
White to Green wire fuse block: roger that.
Ground: with an alternator (came with the car installed) securing a good clean ground inside the dash.

OK, input to the fuel gauge fused, got it. Ground to the same screw as the turn indicator OK.
I don't know why the PO cut the wires.
Here is the switch now ready to reinstall. The copper turn plate was cleaned as new so was the spring looking wire and base plate.

Final review forthcoming.

Thank you. Before.
Using a drummel and an oxide impregnated rubber wheel I have the copper on both slides bright as new. Should 'a, could 'a - but didn't take a photo of them.
Now on to the testing. That wire is very soft and malleable. Easy pull albeit carefully. Breaking the spring lose from ceramic which it's lodged in slightly takes care.
Wrapping around the screw was very easy to move with no resistance bending it.

Paris, may I suggest that when you got
your heater working and your engine running,
you also switch your wipers on.

Now measure the voltage between
the live side of your coil & your battery live.

Next, turn the heater and wipers off,
and measure that voltage again.

If there's a difference in those readings
there will be a significant difference between
your spark on a warm dry day and a cold wet day.

A solenoid switch / relay will make sure
your spark is 100% at all times thumbs up

The main supply to the relay must be fused.

A simple drawing please Mike.
I could wire directly to the solenoid?

This one here comes with wires making it very easy.
I'll order this one up. White to white, black to black, yellow to the battery and blue to the heater?

The butch contacts handle power Paris.

The other's handle switching.

The pre-wired sruff is a gimmick.
It gives you joins in your wiring.

Crimpers aren't that expensive.
