Both running lights are...

Both running lights are out on my 03 passat

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

The round lensed outer daylight running lights next to the actual headlights

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Passat yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am oping to solve the prob myself. haven't done anything to car yet. though I'd start with the Net

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I have the shop manual that doesn't mention running lights in the fuse diagram, just headlights and parking lights. Another fuse card ID's the parking lights as side marker ;ights, but I know those

I figured it out myself. One light was loose and the other bulb was blown.I never actually received an answer because I didn't tell you about the trim and the liter size of the engine like you asked. I feel the website mislead me because it mentioned the $5 and that it was refundable, but I don't recall being told that the next step would be an answer that I would be charged for.
