A position light is one of your parking lights. If you cannot find a blown bulb, this means that one of them has a bad connection, or that it is ready to blow. Turn on your parking lights and hazards. Inspect your lights. -Chris-

any idea how to access the front position lights? i can see one of the position/running lights is blown, but i can not see away to remove the assembly and i don't want to snafu the thing. it's the most inside light of the 3 on the passengers side.

Check (on passenger side) front of door. Due to their perceived less importance compared to say the brake and turn signal lamps, these "side marker" lights are much easier to pass over during inspection. Hint: pick nighttime to conduct your inspection starting with the (hopefully) working driver's side so you have a reference.

When my position light was out it was a taillight. there are 4 bulbs in the back that are generally lit when the car is running. let the car run and look at them. you can access them thru the panel in the trunk.

You can try moving the small wire looms under truck floor that run from the right to the left side!! I found doing this stopped a "Fuel Door Open" message as well as the position bulb failure messages. My particular car has a "rebuilt Titile, and not sure where the damage was.
