Hi there,

Your taillamps have a poor ground, has the back of the tray ever had an accident?

The stalling condition could be related to a common ground issue with the taillamps.

When u say ground u mean earth,so I might have an earth wire loose or broken?
AU Auto Mechanic: Gary, Australia Car Mechanic replied 2 years ago

Yes, poor ground or poor earth on the taillamp assemblies, all lamps will share a common earth.

where is the earth situated,all the lamps work put not when they are ment to.both rear orange lamps appear to be on all the time and when brakes applied rear fog light appears on the dash .
AU Auto Mechanic: Gary, Australia Car Mechanic replied 2 years ago

Do you have an alloy tray or steel styleside tray?

The rear harness would be different between different rear bodies.

Are all the rear bulbs the correct bulbs?

I own a v240 with alloy tray, I hope I can find a circuit for you.

Hello again,

I have made some suggestions for you to check.

I would suggest you take your car to an auto electrician, since it does sound like you have a broken ground wire.

The break could be anywhere in the harness.

Hope this helps.

Regards

Gary
