66 convertible wiring issues
Ok, I may be a bit long winded here to explain what's going on. I had my trunk pan and rear tail piece replaced. It is all primed from the factory. I also had a steering column installed while it was there.
After the repair I got it back without the pigtails attached. I think someone slammed the trunk while the lights were hanging out over the sides. I also had put in a separate hazard flasher as the original column didn't have one.
So I took out the hazard flasher and used the one in the column. Now I have all but the front passenger turn signal working. Not real concerned at this point as I am concentrating on the rear first.
I have managed to get the rear lights working and the rear flasher working. However, when the tail lights are lit the flashers are dim. I think its a faulty ground. My question is if the ground is good on the tail lights why isn't it good for the turn signals? If it is the ground I tried to sand the area where the housings mount. Hope to get the housings grounded to the tail piece.
Banging my head trying to get them grounded. They are dull on both sides and wonder why the tail lamps are grounded but not the turn signals.
I was thinking of running a ground wire to the battery and touching it to the housing or bulb socket to see if that helps. Any suggestions or ideas? Thank you in advance.
