    Ok, I got a 2001 350 XLT that has a problem. We started to dink around with it and now for some reason the parking lights wont work on the truck now. Yet the turn sigs and brakes work. All the fuses are good, unless there are other fuses somewhere I dont know about. Any info would be greatly accepted. Thanks.

    What do you mean by dink around with it? I would say go back and undo whatever it was you messed with. I had a truck do that exact thing before, but it was just a fuse, so maybe yours is a wire or something.

    all else fails run a new hot for the parking lights to a switch but that is the cheap way

    We didnt change anything. We were using a test light to see if it was actually getting power. Since the fuse is good you think possibly there is a break in the wire or possibly even the plug for the fuse is jacked up?

    Could be. Check your wires to make sure there is no break. Then check the socket for the bulb, and see if it is hot.
