Default parking light problem

05 sti

Hey guys ive been trying to fix this problem for about a 2 weeks now and im stumped. My parking lights or city lights on my headlights wont work. my turn signals on my headlight work and my city lights in the rear work fine. the wiring from the turn signal share the same harness with the city light. Replaced the bulbs and checked the fuses but there fine

do you guys think it could be the wiring? they both dont work and went out at the same time.

Parking lights run through the switch on top of the column. See if you can turn them on with that switch. If so, toggle the switch back and forth a few times and see if that fixess the problem. If they work with the switch on but not with iot off, you have a bad switch.

OK. Check and see if you have power at the switch. If you do, the problem is between the switch and the lights, if you don't, the problem is between the fuse box and the switch.

Check all your fuses with a test light.

I'm going to use a multi meter to check to see if the wire has power this weekend. I swapped out my friends harness and it didn't work but it works fine on his car. So I think your right. The problem with lies with the switch or wiring problem. I'll keep you guys updated!
