While installing new headlights, my left side parking light stopped working, the blinker works, the bulb works fine on the other side. My multimeter shows around 9 when the other side shows almost 12. So my question is why do I have lower voltage on the left side causing the the parking light only to not light up?

Hello, did you check voltage at fuse 34-- 10amp, located at the integrated power module? Check the voltage at the fuse an lamp socket or wiring, pink with violet tracer, compare readings. If the readings differ very much, might be a problem with the wiring circuit? My info shows the left rear tail lites work off the same fuse.

I will try that, thanks. To continue my problems, I thought I could fix it by tapping into the one that worked, well. Now both parking lights dont work, and both read around 9 volts where they read close to twelve before. Could there be something in the line like a fuse not in the box or a resister or something. Anyways, I will check 34 in the morning. Thanks again for replying. Ramses

And by the integrated power module, do you mean the fuse box or am I way off, sorry bit of a newbie.
