My 2001 Chev. Silv. 1500 Parking light bulbs burn out consistantly after one month ( right side) and three months ( left side) First time visit to Dealer cost $50 diagnose & check elect. system, $32 for bulb replacement. Now I buy two bulbs $6 at parts store and take 1 hour to R/R the bulbs. The Dealer says they have no Technical Service Bulletins on this problem. I know two other Owners of Silv. 1500 with the same problem.

it does happen that the bulbs burn out and you never noticed the first one burn out so check for power to the bulbs and then check the fuses the head lights are on a different fuse then the parking lights
the problem is with the bulb, what is happening is when you push your brake pedal with the lights off you are turning on you parking light side of you bulb, when the lights are on the parking light is already lit up so when you push the pedal you see no change. try a new bulb
First take out a 1/2 inch socket, 5/16 wrench and remove the
battery. Hidden by the battery is a horn which is removed by removing
the 1/2 inch screw. Now you have access to both the left and right low
You need access to both because the other headlamp is
about ready to burn out.
Next, take the largest screw driver in your box and use it to
lift the tabs on the headlamp connector. Use a shop light or
flashlight to see, but the tabs lift from the top. Gently wiggle the
connector downward until it releases.
AFTER disconnecting the connector, the bulb assembly should
turn counter clockwise a full 40 degrees and stop. After rotating the
assembly, pull/wiggle the bulb assembly straight back from the light
Buy a pair of bulb assemblies and reverse process.
Sounds like you 've got a cross connection in the rear right taillight bulb, or wiring to that area. Start by pulling the bulbs out and checking if it makes any difference with the bulb removed. Check the brake pedal...see if the parking lights still come on. Look at the bulb socket contacts, and the bulb contacts and look for black marks, or burned out filament in the bulb.. if everything looks good there, start tracing the wiring back and look for cuts or a place where the wiring may have been pinched, cut, bared etc. if your right turn signal isn't working and the parking lites are getting triggered, it's got to be in that right rear taillight or wiring...
