Turn Signal Not Illuminating With Parking Lights

So my turn signals have never illuminated when I have my parking lights or DRL on in my 2020 TRD ORP and I always thought thatís how it was designed until I passed another 4R today and their turn signals were illuminated. The previous owner looks to have installed LEDs in the turn signals, could that be the reason, or is it some sort of setting? Pic attached showing parking light not illuminated.

Upon further inspection I attached a photo of the bulb in the socket, it has a pigtail connector on it and I CANNOT figure out how to remove it. It almost feels like it just presses into the socket because when I spin it, it spins a full 360 degrees, anyone have an idea of how to remove it?

They arenít on with DRLs. Not sure about parking lights as I havenít paid much attention. Are they ever on?

If they used 7440 instead of 7443/7444 then that could be the issue. Pull the LED base out of the truck side plug. If thereís 2 pins/legs, itís the wrong bulb type.

Turn Signal Not Illuminating With Parking Lights

Thanks, they donít illuminate with headlight either, and theyíre supposed to right? Parking lights are one turn past DRL where tail lamps and corner/turn signals illuminate.

My issue Iím having now is I CANNOT get the bulb out. It just spins, so I think itís one of those cheap universal bulbs with just the rubber grommet on it holding it in place and Iím worried about damaging the headlight, plus there is so little room to work in there.

If I can get them out Iíll just go back to the amber OEM style.

Try rocking them from side to side, not just rotating them or pulling them back.

Thanks! Yes not that I realize theyíre just pressed in Iíll try and get them out when I have a chance. I was just worried if breaking them or the bulb falling inside the housing.

Right. I got that you canít get the bulbs out. I was talking about the base that goes into the truck harness. The gray plug that the LED is connected to. If you pull that out and it on out has 2 legs/pins/whatever you want to call them, it isnít the right type of light

Iíll check it out today, Iíll be replacing whatever junk is in there with OEM amber type bulbs for ease of maintenance and hopefully have running lights as designed up front again. If I ever get the urge to have LED running lights and turn signals Iíll be installing something that plugs into the socket itself.

Well here is the final product of removing that cheap junk the PO installed on my 4R. Had to basically destroy the bulbs to get them out using pliers. I am glad it didnít damage the headlight housing. For someone to spend that much on a vehicle like this then skimp and put this crap on it blows my mind.

If youíre ever thinking of using universal bulbs with the rubber grommet, DONT! Theyíre a PITA to remove especially in tight places.

Glad you got them out! The 2 wires means they were just turn signals. The turn signal and marker light would have 3 wires. Did you get 7443 or 7444? I couldnít find any 7443 when I replaced mine

I got 7444, which is what the manual called for.
