Re: [DML] tail lights/brake lites

  Another helpful tid-bit as an aside:   Spasmodic brake light function?  
Pull the switch from the bracket by the brake pedal, remove the brass 
contact tabs from the plastic switch-box, emory cloth both the inside 
contact points and the outside. Re-insert, reattach.  Over time, the 
constant arcing   of "juice" inside that switch-box will burn the contact 
areas on the mechanism, rather like inside the distributor cap.  Clean well, 
and drive on...         Drive Stainless (with lights)   Robert VIN 6924

Tired of your rear lights working when they feel like it? Go to Radio Shack
and buy one package Cat.# 64-3010, and one package Cat.# 64-3017 ( small
machine screws and nuts ). Remove your light boards and put one screw 
each of the hollow rivets holding the light sockets. Tighten these down with
a vengence. This improves electrical contact immensely. Fixed mine, try it.
Thanks to Knut Grimsrud! Additional: If your boards are dirty, clean them
first. RS also sells an oxide cleaner that seems to work.

   Got my D back from the shop. Runs great once warmed up. Turn signals were 
not working but when I changed the fuse the Right rear works great but the 
left rear does not work. I changed the bulb still no luck... Could it be the 
assembly that needs replacing on the left rear. Other problem (big) no brake 
lights.. Running lights ok, no back up lights either. Any suggestions will 
be most appreciated.
