RE: [DML] Marker Lights/Parking Lights

Yeah, but if you're getting power one side of the perimeter lights, it can't be the switch.  There's only one wire leaving the headlight switch (the red/green one, if I remember correctly) that goes out to the perimeter lights.  -So this one's got to be the fuse (or at least past the LMS).
In either case, you should put relay in sequence, and *always* make sure your perimeter light connections are clean -particularly those in the fenders.  If your car has ever gotten wet, they're probably rusty. I had one light that the black plastic backing had slipped off, allowed water to enter, and rusted.  After breaking the bulb in my fingers trying to remove it, I cut the bulb out, polished the socket with a dremel, and replaced the bulb.  Then I pulled the black sheath out further from inside the fender, placed it back over the bulb socket, and silicone sealed everything.  (This will all be really obvious if you remove your side marker lights).
Rusty/dirty sockets makes higher resistance, makes hot wires, makes melted headlight switch.  If you don't check them, you're on borrowed time!

Sean, The head light switch supplies the voltage to the side marker lights.
Look for a bad headlight switch or the 1st position of the switch. The
headlight saver will save the switch if it hasn't melted yet.

Does anyone know how the marker lights/parking lights
are wired? My left side is completely out, but my
right side is working.
