So today my new pair of WY5W parking light bulbs came in the mail for my 2010 Lancer GTS sportback.

The bulb on my drivers side was out so i replaced that and the new bulb (white) works good. Now for the bulb on the passengers side which was working fine with the factory bulb (yellow) i took it out to replace it for the new one and now its not working.....what could be the issue? blown fuse? cause it can't be the bulb cause i tried to put the old one back in and it didn't work either....

now i look into the fuse diagram in the manual and i can't find where the fuse is for the parking bulb.

can anyone help?!

Pull all the fuses and inspect them visually? I find that pulling fuses can be a therapeutic experience. This may be because I've owned so many 70s cars that had me pulling fuses more often than normal, but hey! laugh2.gif If you pull one and it's broken, replace it. Even if it's not the one, it needed replacing anyway. And if none of them are broken you know the problem is elsewhere.

Report back when finished.

EDIT: By 'pull all the fuses' I do mean 'one at a time'. Don't pull all of them at once, you'll forget which goes where and won't be able to read the fuse diagram. derp.gif

Parking lights will be fused together, not individually. If one bulb isn't working, it's not a fuse.

I would check and make sure there isn't gunk, old dielectric grease, corrosion, etc inside the connector. If not, use a multimeter to check and see if you're even getting voltage there.

Not necessarily. I've had cars where the lights were separated by side in the fuse panel. Easy enough to sort through fuses anyway, so it's worth doing before digging into wiring.

I've never known Mitsubishi to do that. I know my VW is that way, with canbus control to each individual circuit as well.

And tbh, I did a bit of digging and can't find an individual fuse for the running lights at all... They may be fused with something else like the DRLs.

it ended up being one of the bulb, which was weird because before i unplugged the factory one and it was working fine then tried the factory one again when i notice the aftermarket one didn't work then both didn't work.

Either way i had to go back to factory bulbs cause the aftermarket White bulbs wouldn't pass inspection.....and it had to be the factory Amber color. facepalm.gif atleast i got a refund when i sent the aftermarket ones back.
