Re: Electric problem
On my 86 CGT I found that over the years heat from the tail and stop
lamps melted the plastic rivets holding the clusters together. When
the plastic housing seperates it causes the bulb sockets to seperate
from the track that extends current from the connector to the light.
This seems to cause other kinds of electrical wierdness as well. I
fixed both of my tail lights by drilling through the assembly near
where the rivet melted and putting in an aluminum pop rivet. I backed
up the rivet with a small washer so it wouldn't pull through the
plastic. This is quick, cheap and easy since the entire light cluster
comes out in one piece. Hope this helps.
