Parking Light Problems

I just got a new (to me) 2002 F250 and the parking lights do not work. However the turn signals and emergency lights work. I have check and its not a groud issue and all fuses are good.

Rear parking lights work also.

Where would be a good place to look for other ideas?

Don't get mad at me for asking this, but just out of pure curiosity did you try new bulbs? Or at least check power to the bulbs?

Yes we sure did. Even used the groun in the bulb socket to test the bulbs with the battery.

I don't think it's a switch, if it was a switch none of your parking light would work. The wire splits off to the front in the central junction fuse box. (under dash) The connector that has the wire is a 12 pin rectangular connector with the release tab on one of the long sides. The colors that will be coming out of it are light green and black in pin# 1, tan and orange in #2, Brown in #3 which is the one that should have power with the lights on. If there is power there then you need to trace the wire and look for damage. If you have no power then your fuse box is bad. There is no other connectors between there and the lights. Happy hunting.
