Good Morning:
My driver-side brake lights and turn signals do not function.
I replaced the flasher, bulbs, fuses and checked the ground.
The bulbs are very hot to touch.

Any suggestions as to where to start next?

Much appreciated.
If it helps, I got a 64 that had similar problems. My ribbon cable had failed and had to run some new wires, so check that first. For mine, behind the bezel where it bolts in was a little rusty, and that piece of metal the bolt runs through is EXTREMELY thin. I soldered 2 ground wires on top and bottom of the bezel (1 wasn’t good enough for blinkers) and all is well again. When in doubt, add more grounds.
