front parking lights

08 tacoma parking lights won't come on. The 4 ways and turn signals work fine. The rear lights are fine also

Anyone have any experience with this problem?

Usually not in pairs. Check the fuse, might have a short somewhere.

you're right usually not, but I have had one burn out, never bothered to replace it, and had the other burn out later. thus why I replace bulbs like that in pairs any time just one burns out

found that they were both burned out. was confused as to where they were. I originally thought that they were towards the middle, but they are on the extreme outer edges. thanks for your thoughts.

My two have gone out. Replaced both bulbs yesterday. No luck. The turning signal works just fine. Fuse not blown. Guessing maybe a short??

There are a lot of number for those replacements, but the most common is a 194, or 168

168 being common for exterior; brighter and burn hotter, don't last as long though; higher wattage

194 is typically used for interior lighting; not as bright and doesn't get quite as hot, will last a little longer; lower wattage
