Todd, I guess my question would be what do you mean by "running power to them and grounding them"? The obvious conclusion is the bulbs are bad, but it depends on where you "ran power" . Did you disconnect the wires at the lamp fixture and connect 12 V and ground to them? How good a ground connection? Have you tested the bulbs ? Tom

I ran 12 V to the lamp fixture and grounded to a known good ground. Like I said I was running out of daylight so didn't get deeper into it. I'll do that this weekend. They are brand new bulbs, but still doesn't mean they can't be bad. I've tested many lights on this car, as well as a 77 B I had 10 years ago, so I expected this to work like the others. But then again it is an MG. LOL. My hope was to test the fixture and find it working once I run 12V to it and give it a good ground. Then I would know it was the switch. I still want to check the wiring and make sure they are getting power and a good ground. Hopefully I can do that this weekend.
