1963 R2 has been converted to Airconditoning with Factory Vent Plate, Temp Switch and

Rheostat control.. The rheostat switch worked for about a second

Have Not put a meter on it.. Have not  run wires  to look for fuse yet..

I did find a wire that was not connected and wonder if anyone knows what this could be  ?? Looks like a female spade connector end

In the event this switch is dead is there any kind of replacement?  Not sure if Stude International has one.. they are looking


Appreciate thoughts

On my Avanti with a Factory AC system that was installed after the care was made. I have a in line fuse holder on the power wire to the switches.  I don't remember exactly where it is located.  It blew once when the clutch on the compressor shorted. 

Your wiring to the switches does not look like the factory wiring.

I'd think that black female (likely +12) goes to the spade on the thermocouple, since that has to sense the temp which turns on/off the compressor.  The fan switch below may have it's own power source, but it appears that the thermocouple has a short jumper to the white rheostat.
