    I just repaired my truck after an accident and now the front turn signals on each side don't work when I try to use them.They are wired with the headlights, and will only light up when the headlights are on they stay on and will not blink. The ones in the front below the headlights work fine and the ones in the back work fine. Thanks

    Those side marker lights are not turn signals, the turn signals are in the lower valance of the bumper (the ones that you said are working). Those side marker lights next to the head lights are the parking lights.

    There is a mod on here where you can wire those side markers to function as turn signals though if you want to, but how you describe them is exactly how they are supposed to work

    Thank You!!! I could swear they use to blink. LOL. I think I'm delirious from from doing nothing but work on it for days. Here's where I started after removed the bashed up metal.
