Both the front and rear side markers, the license plate lighs as well as the tail lights do not work when the headlights are turned on. The bulbs are all new and the front side markers work when the turn signals are on. I also found two wires hanging near the fuse panel with connectors on each, one is pink and the other is orange with a black stripe, not sure if these have anything to do with this issue but I just thought I would throw that out there as well. Thanks for the help by the way, Im new to the Fiero world and it seems like you guys are a great group.
But the front and rear side markers, license plate lights and tail lights DO work with the headlights off?
Check your headlight grounds? If I remember correctly there is one ground on each headlight. Raise the headlights up, either manually or electrically, and disconnect them so they stay up. You could try the old trick of pushing the HL switch just right so the HL's go up but do not come on. Kinda tricky but it can be done. Then check each HL well for their respective grounds. Clean them up if need be.
IDK but if the lights all work fine till you turn your headlights on I would suspect a sneak path.
Also in my case, even with brand new bulbs, I still had a bad connection in a bulb socket cause all kinds of wonky problems.
