aux light problem

I recently put cab lights on my '94 F-350 and just wired them to the auxuillary lights instead of wiring them to a switch. Anyways not that light is out when i try and turn on the auxilary lights but the bulb is good cause it works when i turn on the blinker.. I'm stumped.
Thanks

What do you mean by "auxiliary" lights? What would the turn signals have to do with the cab lights?

You need to wire them into the parking light circuit. If you wire it into the right turn signal, then they'd only come on with the right turn signal....

No that's what I did. And now it only lights up when the turn signal is on. When I turn the head lights are on it won't light up

So do you have it wired to the turn signal, or to the parking lights? It's not very clear.

What color was the wire you tapped into, and where was it located?

Get out your test light and find a wire that is hot when the switch is pulled out. Really the way you should be trying to find the right wire. Make sure the wire doesn't become cold when other switches are turned. Ex dimmer.
