I have a 74 MGB. All the running lights are working, except the drivers rear. The side running light, tail light, and licence plate light are all on the same circuit. If I unplug them all I get power, but if I plug any of them in the power goes out. Any thoughts on a reason why?

Do you
have the same problem?
