Passenger parking light AND rear tailight out at same time??
 
I noticed my passenger parking light will not stay on. The light flashes normal when I lock and unlock the jeep but it will not stay on. Same goes for the rear tail light on the same side. If I lock or unlock and use the blinker then it will flash (brake light also works) but when just driving the light will not stay on. Could this be related or just a coincidence?? Didn't know if maybe I blew some kind of fuse or what ??? Thanks for any help you guys can provide. :worthy:

I checked all my 15amp fuses and they all seemed fine.

I apologize up front if I am telling you something you already know, but these are both dual filament bulbs. One filament illuminates for normal lighting purposes and a higher wattage filament illuminates for brake and turn signals. It could just be a coincidence that both bulbs have burnt out the lower wattage filaments. As best as I can recall, the tail lights are on a different circuit than the marker lights, so it wouldn't be a fuse issue.

No I appreciate the info. I didn't know that about the bulbs. I just checked again though and it turned out the m17 fuse was blown. The first time I looked the lighting wasn't that great and I didn't notice the slight break in the fuse. Just changed it and all back to normal again!! Thanks for the help!

Glad you got it fixed. I wonder if they made a change to the lighting circuitry. I had a short in my trailer wiring that was blowing a fuse. With the fuse blown, I was losing both taillights, but still had brake and turn lights. Since yours was passenger side front and back, I didn't think it would have been a fuse. I'm going to have pull some fuses now to see what all is on each circuit.

Yea maybe it's different with different years. I'm just glad it's fixed lol
