Tail Lights

I Have A Problem With The Tail Lights On My 68 Camaro.

When I Connect The Wires To My Left Side The Bulb Comes On When Not It The Housing. When I Put The Assembly In The
Tail Light Housing, The Bulb Gets Brighter. When The Parking Lights Are On, Directional And Brake Lights Do Not Work Because The Bulb Is Using The Wrong Element. Grounds Seem Good And Sockets Are New, Did The Same Thing With The Old Socket.
Anybody Have Any Ideas?

Re: Tail Lights

Take a test light and see if each one of the pigtails sockets is working. One should work with the parking light and the other with the brake. If one side is not working than double check the grounds. Also is it possible you hooked up the sockets wrong? Switched wires?

Re: Tail Lights

Thanks For The Reply.
Sockets Are New, Wires Were Tested Before Install.
Maybe It Is A Bad Ground.
