Yes, insufficient ground to the chassis~ the motor may be fine, the fender/chassis connection is dodgy, and may not make it to the rear of the vehicle, if it's rusted, I can see that, have seen where the gent ran an extra ground wire so the lights would work there~ as far as overheating, can see where lack of Ground may cause that~

Thanks Bob. The brake/tail light are the only lights on that circuit board that dont work. The directional and reverse lights work fine on right side. Looks like 5 wires on that connector. I havent checked the ground yet. Would the brakes have a different ground than the other lights on the same connector?
