    Default Ds23 parking lights

    I have just had some work done on the ds (replaced fue line and repaired rear suspension leak) by a mechanic who knows these carsand the right hand side parking lights (front&rear) and the dash lights no longer work. I have checked every fuse and connection I can find. Any ideas?

    Sounds like 16amp fuse #5 working left to right/ yellow marking

    I'm going with Chris- check the fuse again. Run a continuity test if you need to. A fuse blow can be the finest crack inside the cap. Decades of heat/cool/heat/cool can literally wear a fuse out.

    You guys are just great! You were right of course. I had checked the fuse then spent ages tracing the wires. Turns out the fuse was fine but was not contacting in the box. Simple clean of the contacts and all good!����

    On a closely related question, does anyone know where to find the shorter 10a fuses that fit inside the in-line fuse holders (for the turning headlights)? I am having trouble finding some - repco, autobarn, bursons etc don't have any. Either that or make up new in line fuses with new holders, I guess. Or use an 8a or 12a ceramic fuse?

    Do you mean the 5mm×20mm glass cylinder type fuses? Jaycar may have some.
