Ground at the tail lights should be good because the signals work.

Maybe not it will try and find ground any way it can so it maybe back feeding into the run light system to work the turn lights. As said on the other site need to clean up the fuse ends & holder clips then test if you have power out on the lug of the fuse panel. If yes and still no tail lights I would look at that main to rear harness plug for power. Me I work from the rear lights to the fuses when it would be a bad fuse Roll Eyes

I haven't spent much time on this, I discovered it didn't work and then tested the outputs on the fuse block. Hopefully it should be good later tonigth when i swap them over.

Unfortunately I have some I don't want... Grin Grin Grin
 
The trunk and glovebox lights stay on so I will need to troubleshoot those but at least all my exterior lights and courtesy lights inside work now. Getting there Smiley

Rock on, Tony!!  If gas isn't $16.00 a litre, you might could bring that little lovely up to Nelson!  Gettin' closer every day!
 
Glove box light should be a simple one. Find out why the switch isn't being pushed in when the glove box closes.
 
Trunk light might be a hard one!  If I'm not mistaken, those have a mercury switch in them that activates the light when the trunk goes up.  Or does the '70 AMX have an actual push-button style switch??  My Javelin has the mercury switch type.
 
Was it the switch, the fusebox or a combination therof?

There is no switch on the trunk light as far as I know. Figured it would be on the courtesy light circuit...once again I was wrong  Grin Grin Grin Will have to look into the glovebox switch as you said.
 
I think it was the fuse box. Switch is new anyways, why risk old electriacl switches when everything else is new.
