Help needed. I am experiencing some electrical woes!  Brake lights will work, but taillights, side marker lights, and license plate frame lights will not.  Let me know of you have a suggestion. 

I thought I followed the wiring diagrams everyone shares and I read through some forums, what am I missing?  Thanks for any help, hopefully I can get a bit more done to project Bobby B as the year closes out into next Spring!

My guess is that are suffering from bad grounds.  Each of those light bases has a ground lead that needs to be removed, cleaned and then reinstalled.  Also corroded bullet connectors need to be parted, cleaned and resnapped. Hope this helps.
