Why aren't parking lights working?


Park lamp fuse 20amp located in the under hood fuse box .DRL control module
Daytime Running Lamps (DRL) Control Module
Right of the steering column, behind the IP
Park, Sidemarker, Tail and License Lamps
Voltage is applied continuously to the PARK fuse to the headlamp and the instrument panel (IP) lamp dimmer switch through CKT 1340.
When the headlamp and the (IP) lamp dimmer switch is in the PARK or HEAD position, voltage is applied to CKT 9 thus activating the following lamps:
• The park lamps
• The side marker lamps
• The tail lamps
• The license lamps
The park/turn lamps are the only lamps that do not activate yet receive a current from CKT 9. The park/turn lamps do not activate because the voltage drop across the front side marker lamps is much higher than that across the turn lamp filaments Step

Parking light wont go out and keeps dinging


Reach down and release the parking brake at the same time pull up on the parking brake pedal. Sometimes the pedal gets bumped just enough to engage the switch indicating the brake is engaged.

I have a 2004 Ford Taurus whose parking lights will not turn off. Sometimes they just go off eventually, sometimes the battery has to die in order for them to turn off. How do I fix this?


Sounds like the light switch is not always switching off. Try getting at the back of the switch and figure out which wire goes to the park lights (probably one of the smaller wires, you can possibly identify the colour of the wire by removing the tail light cover and seeing which wire goes to the park light globe). Once you identify the wire switch the lights off (I assume the rogue park lights stay on) disconnect the wire. If the park lights go off, the fault almost certainly lies with the light switch. If the rogue park lights remain on then power is getting to the park light wires after the switch. You could try to find where the park light wires are touching live wires ( a difficult job) or cut the old wires off at the switch and the park lights and run new wires from the switch to the park lights.

Dodge ram 1500- when car is in park, the "park lights" dont work.


The parking lights would not normally come on unless you turn them on with the headlight switch. The daytime running lights would come on in drive and go off in park.
If you can't turn the parking lights on with the headlight switch, you would check the fuse, the relay if equipped, and the headlight switch.

Blew the rear parking lights. Front parking


If they are both gone, you either have a bad ground wire or broken wire. See if you have power back there. The bulbs could be both burnt out.

Running light go out but parking lights remain on in 2001 corolla


My '00 Subaru has a separate switch on the steering column for the parking lights, I never use it, but the lights will stay on with the key off. Look for a separate switch. If you find one ask the dealer for your $ back

Parking lights problem on my Kia Sorento 2003


Ok Maybe it's going to help somebody, I find the problem. It's the Unit DRL (Day Runing Light) control. Just have to unclip the little door on the side of the dash, driver side, it's the little black box holding with a nut right there. Dealer price.....$156.73. They charge 45 minutes to replace it but it take about 5, so do it yourself. Hoping it's going to help.
