I have a 1973 240z, and I have some funky stuff going on. When I turn the left turn signal on it seems to work fine. When I turn the right signal on I get a very dim blinking on every light on the right side taillight and even on the reverse lights (both sides)...

Anyone have any idea on what is going on? I have looked and looked to no avail. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

I had the same problem turned out to be a loose wire behind the light bulb socket.

It sounds like a bad ground in the back for the right tail lights and brake lights/turn signals.

Where exactly is the ground for the tail light harness?

Located in the area around the rear hatch lock on the body. Open the hatch, remove the inner panel that runs the width of the rear area around the tailights, and look for the black wire that is screwed to the body.
