Front Parking lights won't come on.

I have a 2000 4runner and the front parking lights won't come on. I've pulled all the fuses from under the steering wheel and under the hood and they are all good. Any ideas?...they don't come on when the headlights are on or when they are switched on by themselves. I know that at least one is a brand new bulb.

I have sold several column switches to guys with this exact problem.

Do your park lights in the back work? If not, its the switch.

The reason your headlights work is because of the DRL system.

Do you have fog lights? Are they functioning properly through the stalk switch?

I have this same exact thing. I bought my 4Runner and the front parking lights will not come on. The back ones, the blinkers front and rear, all work just not the front parking lights.
