Rear Tail Lights - driving lights

I promise I searched before I decided to post.
I'm helping a friend who just had his 67 RS convertible completed. This issue are the rear driving lights.
Brake lights work....Signals work...but no driving lights in the rear. All the front lights and signals are working fine.

Any advice on where to look first before I take up the carpet looking for a break? Thanks.

Any time that's happened with me it's always been a sweet spot in the headlight switch. Other than that you have to verify the correct sockets and bulbs (1157) were used.

If you are talking about the inner tail lights, they have a single filiment bulb (1156). As far as tail lights in general, make sure the socket is getting a good ground in the tail light housing. Also, sometimes the bulbs don't fit in the socket very good. Really noticable with aftermarket sockets. You might try testing to see if voltage is at the socket and go from there... Plus, making sure the light switch connector is seated well on the switch is always a good start.
