Hello listers,
I installed a new rear wiring harness from Victoria British today. The
quality is good and everything back there works better now, but there is one
problem. Something is wrong with the lights on the passenger (right) side.
The brake light works, but the tail light and sidemarker don't and turn
signal only lights up without flashing. Also, either the brake or tail light
glows very faintly when the turn signal is switched on. Looking at the old
rear harness, it appears that a DPO in the past ran a wire from the left
side lights to the right side in order to make them operational. I have
tested all the bulbs and double checked all connections. I used contact
cleaner and dilectric grease on all of them. I can only guess at what would
cause the lights one one side to malfunction. My question to you is what's
the next step I should take. Also, do the tail light and side marker lights
ground themselves to the body through their nuts and bolts? Even though the
main harness will need replacement in the near future, I can't afford to do
it just yet. Thanks for your assistance.
