View Full Version : Firebird Courtesy Lights

Hello everyone, I have an electrical problem for the group to consider.

1979 Trans Am with Courtesy Light Group and Rally Gauges

The lighter, clock and tachometer stopped working, the dome lamp and under dash courtesy lights stay on at half brightness when the doors are closed (and light switch rheostat is off). Removing the dome lamp bulb disables the dome and courtesy lights. The trunk light works normally under all conditions. Replacing the door switch did not fix anything. Any ideas? Thanks, Todd C

Check the fuses and also the fusible links under the hood.

It sounds like you've got a circuit backfeeding.
