Q: Parking lights not working.

asked by on January 08, 2016

My parking lights do not come on when I turn on the headlights. I need that checked out as well as my electrical system.

Power would need to be checked at the bulb connectors to verify the switch and fuse is working something any certified mechanic could do, if there is no power I would check the fuse, if there is power its most likely a bulb or lack of a ground.
