J'imagine qu'il va falloir que tu repinne le connecteur sur le board pis que tu refasse le femelle aussi..

Probably pins in connectors - check for any that are running hot.
Could also be a shorted bulb or socket somewhere drastically increasing current draw on the GI and reducing voltage to the lamps.
Any GI fuse blowing? If not - then most probably pins/connectors issue.

Use the Williams Space Station manual power wiring schematics extract below - I circled the wiring and connectors you need to look at for the GI.

Bonne chance!
