Wiring Question

    Have a wiring question that I thought someone might be able to shed some thoughts on.

    I have a unimount pro plow and broke a head light a while back. I picked up a pair of used lights all wired up and ready to go. Got them put on and everything works except the drivers side turn signal. I checked the bulbs and they seem to be fine althought the bottom bulb is a bit corroded in its socket. Any thoughts on why they might not working? It is a 9 pin set up. Probably something simple but thought I would check.

    Any thoughts would be great.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    have you tried changing the socket out with a new one?

    Any broken wire inside the housing. Check the black/orange (ground wire) for any corrosion..

    Did you check the gray wire (driver side) that taps into the turn signal for any corrosion at the splice?

    Twinman,

    I am going to swap the socket out on the morning and see if that helps. While I am at it I will check the gray wire and black and orange grounds as well. Thanks for the input I will let you know how I come out.

    Got em working. The sockets were real corroded so I ended up replacing them and going through all of the grounds and other connections to make sure that they were all up to snuff.
    Thanks again.
