Re: Smoked UrQ taillights - Question
i have now worked on the connectors in two 83
urq's. both of them had a partial failure in
the wire to plug interface area for the ground
wire. this is in the left side, drivers side,
as that is where the wires meet a plug which
splits into each side of the car. it uses the
plug to do this, putting a lot of load on that
connection point. lightly melted plugs and
sagging contacts are what i have seen in both
coupes; a little tweaking and cleaning restored
i think a larger draw could easily push this
weak spot past the limit. someday i am going
to wire around this point because i would like
to slightly increase my light output. in your
situation i would do the same.
