When are the tiny bulb lights on the sides of my rear bumper supposed to light up.
Right now they only come on when i turn on the headlights and they don't blink with the rest of the turn signal lights.
Are they supposed to blink? Are they working properly?

Clearance lights

Doc here:pimp:

Not knowing the truck, In general, those are meant to be clearance lights, usually they don't blink and should be on in park or full on lights.

Like Side lights on a big rig.

in my 82 Grand prix (same thing as your monte but a bit differnt body style) i beleive that the side lights blink, the front/back lights blink and then the side ones and then the front/back and again the side ones.

i will check and make shure though

Look at the bulb , if there are two contacts or two elements, then it should blink. If there is only one, then it shouldn't blink.

I'm sorry "Good Buddy" .......

I somehow got the idea that we were talking about a Pick~em~up~Truck....

I think I got MY wires crossed... MY Rear lamps are starting to blink...

I need an Endorphin defrag....

Time fur me manservant KARL ,
(Big Scandinavian Dude, With a square head and grade 5 bolts in his neck)

To hook up me patented "Frank~N~Stein" Electro shock therapy Machine, and do a serious brain cell Scan and defrag....Clean up the bad files...

If It is a passenger Car, Yes, those should Probably blink with turn-signals,

(otherwise just how would those blue haired old ladies that ride your quarter panel blind spot know you were about to crash into them , Huh?)

As Troy Said, Check the bulbs, If they are duel elements, or there are two bulbs, It's a blinker...Look for two burned out bulbs...(like mine, Those that flickered and went out years ago...) If not, then suspect a bad ground on the rears.

Fur a real thrill, turn on the 4 ways and see what blinks...

Let us know what ya find!

Time fur me Prozac and Valium
