Running Light Problem-Help!

Hey everyone,

My front orange running lights, my passenger side rear light, and license plate light work....but my drivers side rear light and upper rear red running lights don't work now. Brake lights and turn signals work both sides. What is going on?

Does anyone know how the rear lights are routed on a 67 Overlander? I'm chasing wires tommorrow am....ugh.

Tim

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

First off, welcome to the Forums. We're glad to have you with us.

As far as your lights go, are the bulbs all good?

I think your wires come from the curb side, so I'd remove the can for the light on both sides and check all the connections, because if a wire is broken on the passanger rear tail light it very well could not allow it to work on the street side rear and top. Of course as Brian pointed out, double check all bulbs etc and clean grounds before pulling other things apart. Welcome to the forums as well!

Welcome to the forums!

You say they aren't working now, were they working before? I agree with the others that I would start with the basics and move up.

My upper rear red and front amber run in series

Thanks guys....Yep, the wires look to come up from the bottom of the curb side...to the curb side can. The green wire feeds the curb can, branches to the license plate light, and maybe to the street side can. When I take the street side can off, I see a green wire headed towards the curb side, and a wire headed upwards to possibly the upper running lights. Does anyone know if the green leaded is tied to the license plate light and the street side can at the curb side can? I don't see anyway to get in there and sort out the wiring.

I have a hunch the street side can came loose behind the panels.
