Both my turn signal lights on the hood won't light. I was told the grounding is a problem but a restoration fellow said they may be the bulbs. He said when you try to unscrew that small housing thet usually break or snap off.
He said the replacement ones on the market are junk. Has anyone had this issue. My GTX is an original survivor so I'm trying to fix the original OEM lights.
Thanks much. Fred

I’ve had great luck with PG Classics lenses and sockets in my original chrome housings
 
NOS ones are out there on the usual places but pricey
 
Grounding can be a problem...
The hood lites are grounded through the hinges and often there is a poor connection due to paint and/or oxidation.
I had that issue and simply installed a jumper ground link to the hood.
Key point is to make sure U are getting the 12V through existing wires.
Also it is EZ to lift off the hood assembly and double check the wires, sockets and bulbs.

Just my $0.02... :thumbsup:
 
To avoid any further issues with bulbs unscrewing and some lite dielectric grease to the threads when installing sockets back on. Thats what I did with the new ones.
 
Mine was the ground. Excess paint from restoration and I had erratic operation of the bulbs. Works perfect now.
