Why do my front parking and signal lights not work but the rear does on my 1999 corvette?

Asked by Oct 12, 2015 at 08:45 PM about the 1999 Chevrolet Corvette

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I own a 1999 corvette C5 and my front parking and front signal lights don't work
anymore.  My tail lights and rear signals still work.  Is there an inline fuse or
something that I can look at?

Have you checked the bulb itself? Make sure the wire is attached. Both lights should run on the same fuse, so that should be eliminated. If the other side works, than the wires may be god. The next will be a switch to check. If you can, test for p;over to the bulb socket. If you have power to the socket, it may be the bug or a bad socket.... Make sure it is also grounded. Check and clean all connections.

It may be a broken wore, fuse, or bulbs burnt out. First, if you are skilled enough, check to see if there is power coming to the bulbs. If not, check the fuses. If there is power on both side of the fuses, the fuses are good. There may be a bad connection to the grounding wire, or a electrical wire may have been pinched, breaking the wire within the line. There is a device that can follow the wire testing if there is current where test. Last, the switch itself may be bad, in need of cleaning, or reconnection of the wiring. Electricity issues are actually straight forward. Think of it as water flowing down a hose. a break in the hose, the water stops flowing. First, check the bulbs, next fuses, then connections. If it looks good, check the wiring at the lamp container for power.
