Do the front parking lights work?
Do you have a meter to check for power and grounds?
make sure you have the lights turned on and off of autolamps and recheck the parking lights.

Let me double check - but I believe that I DO NOT have parking lights

Make sure please. Also, check and make sure the auto lamps are not on and make sure the daytime running lights are not on. Turn the headlights on manually.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
lights are on MANUALLY - no tail lights - no parking lights -

Ok. Thank you.

Check fuse #22 in the dash fuse box. It should be a 15 amp blue fuse.
