My son just purchased a '82 280zx and all the lights on the circuit with the tail lights are not working(running lights, side markers,etc). We have checked the obvious, fuses, fusible links, switch,lighting relay, etc. We are looking for a common link other than what has been checked (hidded locations of connectors, etc). We purchased a Haynes manual(very little help) and referred to a neighbors Factory manual for a '78 model(good schematics but not sure of differences in model years). It will take 2-3 weeks to receicve a photo copy from Dyment and he would like to drive it before then. Can anyone help? I also checked your archives, but was unsuccessful in finding anything specific relating to our problem. Good site with a wealth of info for Z owners. Thanks.
