This Section contains 1956 Buick wiring diagrams for chassis and body. The 1956 Buick wiring may be easily traced by paying attention to the color code on each wire and the color code indicated on the diagrams.
Many of the 1956 Buick wiring connections use a flat push-pull type terminal. The terminal on the wire requires a straight hard push to seat it in the socket. A hard steady pull on the wire is required to detach the terminal from the socket.
A central fuse block is mounted under the cowl on the left side. The 1956 Buick fuse block serves as a convenient junction point for a number of wiring circuits, provides a mounting for the direction signal flasher, and contains the fuses shown in figure 10-78.
