Default Parking Lamps?

Yesterday, after washing my car, I noticed that the parking lamp indicator came on. I had my friend check and he said all lights were on. Maybe we're not looking at the parking lamps, could you specify as to exactly which ones they are? Call me crazy but nothing looked out of place.

On the front, one on the corner and one on the inside of the headlight. Back..pretty much every light and the center tail light up.

Any loose connection can cause your lamp monitor to hassle you.

Your license lights are also included on that circuit. Most of the time people can't figure this out, that'* what it is. They are also very likely to get wet during a wash.

That'* what I thought... just wanted to make suer i wasn't going nuts. I'll have to check it out again today. And if it is a loose connection, should I just go around and just check all the light connections?

Check your license plate lights first. Then check each and every connection (other than turn or stop or reverse).

Any light that comes on with the parking lamps on.

How could I have forgotten to mention license plate... Geeezzzz..I'm going back to bed.

BTW be careful when pulling them the screws tend to rust and the plastic covers tend to break.

On the DIC, there was an indicator on the front bumper, does that specifically meant hat the problem is on the fron lights, or is that just standard for any parking lamps.

License plate lights are both on and pretty snug. Parking lamp lights... PITA to get to. But I finally got to look for why my hood sits lower on one side... becuase I'm missing the rubber bushing off the hood support on one side, so if any of you have extras...

Yes, the front indicator means front only problem. And parking lamp would be one of the corners or the inner headlight turn bulb. Should be one of those 4.

On the rubber hood bumper..if you'd like I should be able to pick one up at a yard this coming weekend..or maybe someone else had one laying around.

Yes the parking lamp problem is gone I believe, I had my car idling for a little while yesterday, after checking out all the lights, and the drivers side marker light was out. I got back in my car and noticed that the indicator was off, and the light worked. I don't know if it was a loose connection, or maybe some water, or something, but it'* not showing, so I'm happy. As for the the rubber hood bumper, if I don't get a chance to get to a yard near me this week, I would be grateful if you could pick one up for me. If I go I think I may pick up an antenna too =D.
