Broken switch convertable top 1970 Cadillac DeVille. Three wires, purple, grey, and orange/black. I am guessing the orange should be 12 volt, but no power is present. Fuses on fuse block all seem ok. I can not get behind dash to see where orange wire goes or gets power from. Please advise. If I put a new switch in, can I run 12 volt with a 25Amp fuse in line to the switch to replace the orange wire? Please advise. Thanks, Neil
