Soldered wire to socket metal and ran to body bolt.How did you add aditional grounds to the light sockets?
First place id look would be the connector on the steering column. There is a feed from the brake switch ( should be white wire) that runs to the connector on the steering co!umn. Might want to check that for something amiss, such as pushed/ bent connector or damaged wire.
Will do . . . thanks. Hoping not to pull the steering wheel, but probably going to have to.
