Hi Im David, if you have a meter, check for voltage at the sockets. make sure the sockets arent corroded too. if there is voltage there then make sure the grounds are good. check the wiring to the sockets for being damaged.

I have done that already. grounds are good. Could it be a fuse?

Still searching as changing fuses did not work
Expert:  david craig replied 1 year ago.

So the grounds are good, but you never said anything about having or not having any power.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Have power
Expert:  david craig replied 1 year ago.

if you have 12 volts and a good ground at each socket, then you are using the wrong bulbs.

Expert:  david craig replied 1 year ago.

Expert:  david craig replied 1 year ago.

if you are getting 12 volts and the grounds are good, then its either the wrong bulbs or your sockets are wallowed out
