Well I have
head lights
Front and rear flashers
Brake lights.
Can’t get any turn signals or rear running lights.


If anyone has a idea what to check for rear running lights or any turn signals.

The turn signals, brakes and flasher use the same wires to the rear so the problem is up front, column, signal switch would be a start.
The rear running lights are a separate wire and bulb filament so the problem can be anywhere in this circuit. Check for power at the light switch and work back from there. I have had 2 rear running light failures in the rear harness connector just up behind the dash on the drivers side, so check this connector both sides for power.

I guess I will end up ripping it all out and doing the restore with my Chevy motor and trans. Was gonna try to keep it all AMC but if I have to tear very deep into it might as well make it right and put a motor that makes cheap power.

What if it's just the bulbs?

It’s not the bulbs. I am pulling the wiring apart now to see if it is a easy fix or do I just do a total rebuild.
