Electrical Mystery

Everyone has had problems with their tail light guards, but I am determined to make mine work (I have the time and enjoy a good challenge).

Right now, the lights that work include tail lights, reverse lights, and third brake light. The brake lights do not work and I have no turn signals or hazards anywhere on the jeep.

I took the rubber washers off the bolts that came with the kit and even installed lock washers on the back side to insure a tight ground. All fuses in the fuse box are good. All fuses under the hood are good.

Anyone have any ideas?

Jumper the ground via a wire between the frame and bulb socket base and see if they start working properly again. If they do, you still have a missing/weak ground problem. Personally I wouldn't run those tail light guards, they cost more to buy than the tail light housing they fit around. They certainly aren't strong enough to protect the tail lights if you were to back or slide into a big rock etc.

When you have a choice, buy American made.
