We are in the final stages of getting our unit on the road. My husband was hooking up the lights and brakes - he had to run the wiring for the truck as there wasn't a towing package on it. But we have hit a snag.
When we brought this home all we had working was the clearance/running lights. When he started yesterday it was the same thing; after some cleaning and removal of the rear lens caps we found a few bulbs gone. He was short of bulbs but used a couple he had and we had all the lights on and working except for the very outside running lights at the rear brake/turn/running light section. He went and bought new bulbs and put them all in. He also replaced the three front clearance lights.
He then wired up those two outside rear lights to the rear running lights since some PO had cut the wires to them (green wire) and then nothing
worked. He went back and disconnected those two lights and we still had nothing. Hmm. With some messing around we finally got the clearance lights and the back up lights to work but when we put the left turn signal on all four lights flash. When we put the right turn on it works normally.
We are not finding any juice now on the red wire for the left turn signal, but when doing a continuity check from this wire to the front it is fine.
Additionally, when we put the working turn light on the tow vehicles turn lights dim.
After reading on this forum I personally went and checked to be sure that the bulbs were the correct ones and in the correct places. If my husband has them right - with single filament in four places and only double filaments at the turn signals.
Summer is almost gone, and I am so close to getting this on the road, but we have now lost almost all weekend and still are no further with the light situation.
I am all ears for some help.
