With age many of the switches are failing (some just dirty contacts inside switch).

Locate the switch and make sure it is functioning 100% before worrying about the wiring!

In most cases it will be a switch or switch adjustment issue!

Wiring in the old Holdens is pretty good (even old as it is), its quite often only the connector plugs that will let you down!
