    Side marker lights(front fender)

    Anybody know much about these lights?...sometimes my driver's side works correctly, then it may not for a couple of days, and so on...the passenger side I've never seen work...all of the other bulbs are good and I don't get a hyper blink indicating that a bulb is out...any thoughts?

    Wiring? Corroded connections? Just throwing it out there.

    Should theses lights only flash with blinker or at night are they on solid until blinker is used?

    I think they light up solid only when you unlock with button on fob during nighttime if you don't passive unlock. Otherwise yeah blinker only. I did pass by a 05-07 model the other day that was solid on, I assumed either modded to be that way or some type of electrical short.

    Nope, only time they are on is using blinker or lock/unlock

    Or perhaps it's a 2005 only "feature" to have them on with the DRLs

    I've now seen 2 STS models that have them on. I believe them both to be 2005 models. Perhaps some other 2005 owners could chime in, possibly around your build date even.
