    Replacing US50 Ignition Switch in 66 Charger. 1st time I have ever replaced it.
    I noticed there is not a connection for the ground and I am assuming a ground wire fell off and I couldn't find it.
    Is the ground just left unconnected?
    Plus I tried to start the car and nothing. Grounded the switch out and nothing.

    Appreciate any feed-back...

    I just installed that switch in my car and noticed the same thing. The switch works great and being that the switch is grounded once it’s installed I would think it will work fine. You could always run a ground wire to the switch if you want just to make sure.

    Thanks. I figured the same thing, it will ground itself out on the Metal Dash once you screw the front bezel back on. The Ground tab is pointless.
