ok so i just bought A 77 pinto and none of the marker lights in the drivers side work i pulled the bulbs and they all look good so im hoping that its just the bulb housings/ harnesses that are bad cause they are all rusted out how hard it it to find  these parts and do yall have any other ideas as to what may have caused this issue

 I know the brake lights are wrired through the turn signal switch under the steering wheel, so dont rule it out if its not bad sockets bulbs or grounds.

check the grounds in the sockets and on the body, my 78 would work then not work it was the sockets! had to find old ones that where not all worn out!! good luck hope this helps,

I got all my new sockets at NAPA. One of the best this I could have done
  I do what the voices in my Pinto tell me to do
