Hi dear Pinsiders,

I noticed some time ago, that the backbox-lightning of my Fish Tales wasn't working correctly.
The only row of lamps of the "backbox-GI-lightning", that is working, seems to be the first row.
But the flashers work fine.
Do you know, what I have to do, to fix this problem?

Thanks for your help

First off is to check all plugs for the back box than all fuses for those lights with a DMM.

It is probably the lighting connector is burned, I just found mine was burned just like the gi lamp connector.Follow the wires to the boards and you will find j120 burned .Replaced the connector and all is fine.

Mine was like that and it was a few poor connections on the connector at the board. Simple enough to repair. There was also a loose connection behind the backbox door and continuity was broken between a few lamps sockets. Track those down and read ire them and you should be good to go. Good luck!

re-punch the wires down on the connector, or replace the connector as it might be brown or burnt out and a bit crispy. If you have a book printed off or have a manual, just use the diagram and follow the wiring, works great.
