Postby ZEUSUSA » Thu Jul 23, 2015 9:33 pm



I have 1988 1500GL, I have no rear lights, brake,turn signal...I check fuses..ok, I swap relay 2 and 3 out with other relay, but no change. I check volt in brake and tail sockets ...no voltage when turn signal on...but front right and left turn signals are working but are flashing very fast. I have all lights working in front and rear side running lights...I bought a manual and need help where to check next...help please

As a start, have you checked the actual globes? If the back ones do not work, then there could be a loose or broken wire. Trace through the wiring, checking all the connections, including the earths. It sounds like you have checked the relays and fuses, but check the fuses. Have you got a multimeter? If so check the voltages at each of the lights to see if you have around 12volts. Get back to us if you do not succeed.

Sounds like a bad ground. Check resistance between the negative battery post and the green wire at the tail/brake lights. Should be near 0 ohms. If higher start looking for a burned green wire pin in one of the connectors.

I CHECK FOR VOLTAGE AT TAIL LIGHT SOCKETS AND TURN SIGNAL SOCKETS WHEN TURN ON..NO VOLTAGE ON EITHER.
