The front white side marker lights come on with the turn signals to light your way around corners they dont blink they just illuminate the right or left corners the ones at the rear left and right come on with the back up lights,, i have a 86 vette too look for ground wire problems as they are more common on these cars, you may have voltage at the light socket but if its not grounded good no light s

  • Turn the engine off and approach the side of the porsch with the burn-out side-marker light. If you are replacing both, start at either side; the replacement procedure is the same.
  • 2 Remove the screws from the plastic fender liner. Peel back the liner to access the area behind the fender.
  • 3 Reach your hand inside to gain access to the side-marker light's backing. Push the backing forward to release the side-marker lens; it's held in place by small clips.
  • 4 Grab the lens on the outer side and turn it over to access the back. Gently turn the bulb to release it from the plastic lens.
  • 5 Pull the bulb straight out to remove it from the electrical socket. Insert a new bulb, but do not touch the glass part of the bulb with your hand.
  • 6 Push the new bulb into the side-marker lens. Turn it clockwise to install it. Push the side-marker lens back into place. Apply gentle pressure to the lens to pop it back into its mount.
  • 7 Replace the screws along the edge of the fender liner.

    Change left front parking/marker light bulb

    Raise the hood, look at the back side of the marker light, if you can see the socket for the bulb, turn it and it should pull out of the light. If you cannot see the back side of the light and locate this socket, you may have to remove the light assembly from the vehicle to access this socket. Hope this helps.

    1997 mustang rear running lights dont work front

    assuming you have brake lights and marker light, I would check the socket for voltage, both the contacts and probe the wire (Brown) for could be a bad socket.... if no voltage, trace the "Bwn" wire back and keep probing til you find voltage, check the connector in the trunk on the LT/RT side also...hope this helps you...GL

    Had a problem with a right, amber side marker on right side

    Usually one of the holes in the marker light where screw goes in, has metal contact where screw meets light, but if not, and they are not push in wire connection type from behind, then just run your white wire up through hole in housing, and bare the end & tighten it up under screw holding light to body. White should be ground, brown should be power.
