Default Park Light Blinker Malfunction

This is very interesting.... the electircal going to the turn signal/park lamp isn't working yet we tested to see if there was any current going to it with one of the snap on electrical dectors. Switched out the lamp but still not working... any suggestions on whats going on? (Not really a performance post but didn't know where to put this.. General?)

Snuggles, this section is for PERFORMANCE topics.

I'll move this for you to the right section. Please don't post mechanical problems here.

Alright Snuggles, we need to be more specific as to which Park/Turn Signal Lamp? Left ot right? Does the corresponding rear Turn Signal Lamp operate? And what'* happening on the Instument Panel Cluster (IPC) with regard to the Turn Signals? Make sure the lamp sockets are clean when installing new lamps. What lamp # are you using to replace the Park/Turn Signal?

Okay first off its the left (driver side) and the rear turn signal on the left side sticks like a solid yellow instead of flashing. On the IPC it says Lamp monitor: "Park Lamp/Turn signal" and than on my Digital Display in the winshield shows the turn signal stuck. The Lamp number is 194 corresponding to the number 194 on the old lamp.

Usually when a turn signal lights but doesn't flash it means:
1- another bulb is burned out - make sure all the bulbs are lighting (front/back/side marker)
2- one of the bulbs was replaced with the incorrect bulb
3 - the flasher is shot.
