Front Corner Lights not working

Okay, this might be a dumb question - but what do the front corner lights do?

The reason I'm asking is because I picked up a Tacoma (2001 Prerunner) recently and the front corner lights do absolutely nothing.

The signal lights are in the bumper, while the corners stay off all the time. I opened them up today and noticed they had a bulb, so they obviously have to light up sometime...right?

What fuse is related to the corners? I found the headlight fuse and signals, but not the corner lights...any ideas?

Are they supposed to turn on? Do they do anything at all? Mine are just decorations right now, i'm wondering what fuse is responsible for getting them to light up.

The sidemarkers are linked to the TAIL fuse, in the engine compartment. Make sure its a 10A

Get a Volt Mete, to see if any juice is going to the bulbs?

OP - as stated, the lights are marker/corner/park lights. They are not supposed to flash with the turn signal as they are not a turn signal. Your turn signals are in the bumper as you said. The lights are only supposed to come on with you have your headlamp switch turned on. They are designed to let other drivers know the size and positioning of your vehicle at night.

Check to see if they come on with the headlamp switch. If they don't then will be a matter of doing the problem solving to find out why they are not working at all.
