Damn fuse popped again.This time it happened wit hthe headlights/parklamps on.
Thinkin it may be a bad socket up front in the sidemarkers.
I can run the lights with the detent on the healight switch b etween park and headlights and they light up .
When I do that I can run  the brake lights and park lamps all day long---but the front parks do not light up--which is where I am "drawing" a conclusion.
I did swap in used ones a few years bac and I gat tons of spares I tested.
Another ten minutes--or ten years whicheverr comes first..

I did.
Got my deposit on her today.
Going two weeks from today.
I will be driving it to his house.
I do not want to be on the highway with no brake lights.
If it pops after I hand over  the keys,his problem then.

Found it.
I had the car parked in the garage,shut off.
Installed a new fuse,turned on the park lamps.
POOF.
OK
disabled the front lighting harness,installed another fuse.
no poof.
So it's in the front.I know the back is good since I fixed it already.
Gerri noticed the right front park was dim,and the left was brighter.
Pulled both sockets out and the right one corroded badly.One socket the bulb was fused to it.
Luckily I have (too) many spares,and installed fresh bulbs.
Reconnected everything,left park lights on for 30 minutes.
no poof
Depressed the brake pedal,kept on it for five minutes.
no poof.
So,in conclusion,I replaced one bad tailight socket,and both fronts.
I also repaired the left cornering lamp which it too is now fully functional.
 
Oh..and recharge battery,LOL!!!
Toggle switch on the blower motor is next.
