Hi my name is***** will be glad to help. Check the harness both front and rear for any splices from prior work wrapped in electrical tape ( corroded crimped connectors/ rubbed through and bare wiring) around the hood hinge area and to the tail lights.
Click here for a schematic to help with wire identification while testing continuity and power in the circuit.
Thanks for the update. If the light when on is dim it means it is poorly grounded so check your grounds and also check for corrosion or poor connections in the light sockets themselves. If ok look for any corrosion or open circuits in the harness. when the hazards are on what lights work and which are out?
I do not know how that side of things work. The experts use the site to help people and all I know is we get a percentage of the question value on positive feedback and accepted answers. So in this case 23 to the expert and the rest to the site. No rating or negative rating the expert does not get paid
The site can help with any billing issues if you need to resolve any I can send you there before we go any further
let me know
Hi, I posted the schematic but I can post some more in depth for you as well.... The site had this question locked for some time and just opened it back up.
We can post back and forth as needed
Click on this link for your schematics.
I see, Did you need help interpreting the schematics or would you prefer I flew out there with my test light and multi-meter and troubleshoot the circuit with you? So most shops are over 100 per hour and this sight offers informational help for a one time charge where you can post back and forth with an expert to help diagnose your problem but if your electrical background is not there there is nothing I can do. I get road calls from owner operators frequently that tell me they "rewired" thier lights and when I arrive I have to start over... LOL By the time I got there the owner operator had everything spliced together and a mess but Id have to tell him to walk away as he stood over my shoulder.... " I already checked that... etc" The "Schematics" if you know how to interpret them take the guess work out and make it simple but you have to know how to interpret them and by your response it seems you might not understand the schematics. Sometimes it is better just to have someone good with electrical come out and test the circuit with a volt OHM meter and test light using the schematic... If down time is an issue it should be with a mechanic not a web site.... Just a thought... Good luck
