The front side marker lights do not come on with other running lights but they are flashing as turn signal indicators. These lghts are the only lights that can serve the side marker requirement. Owners Manual calls for a 194 bulb. The rear side markers come on with running lights and do not work as signal indicators. They take a 168. Where do I begin troubleshooting the front side markers?

Your MFS is gunked up. Take it out, spray about a 1/2 can of WD 40 into it while working all the functions. This should fix your problem. While you are at it, pry off the end cap and take out the small contacts for the intermittent wipers. This will be full of hard grease. Lightly sand the wiper contacts and use some Vaseline to re-lube the contact area.
