Lighting problem

Post by Laurel » Mon Jun 23, 2014 4:36 pm

I have a 1992 1500A. When in neutral all lights work (turn signals, brake lights and four-way flashers), but when in gear they do not. Can anyone suggest what might be wrong?

Most likely a ground problem.Look close at the harness on both sides.Youll have to remove the side covers.
There is a connector block with several green wires.Sometimes there taped up and hard to find.
These are all the grounds and have a shorting strap attached across the top.A few may be corroded.
Search for ground problems.Youll see pictures of them.
