Q: Brake lights and blinkers don't function

asked by on February 11, 2016

My brake lights and blinkers are not working.

Hello. Cool and rare car you have. I would suggest having a technician check the electrical components in your vehicle. Also, I recommend checking the fuses, brake pedal switch, and electrical wiring to the tail lights. I would suspect that there is a short from a deteriorated connection in the tail light circuit. Deterioration of electrical components are common in classic vehicles such as yours.
