My pass side front turn signal light will not light up. It will work when the blinker is engaged but not when the driving lights are on.

The side markers also exhibit the same. The driver side corner light is fine, it lights up when the lights are turned on adn it blinks fine as well. But the others will not stay on.

I checked fuses ( hard to tell what goes where) and they all appear to be fine.

98 M3 BTW.

my car does the same thing. those bulbs have dual filiment which means one can burn out where the other stays good, but the car wont indicate a dead bulb till both filiments are burnt out. so all you need is a new bulb, cheap fix. although there might be some bad wiring as well cause when i replaced my bulb that same driving light filiment burnt out again within a month

UPDATE

THe turnsignal was blown out. the blb was toast.

The side markers however, should they light up with the driving lights or just when using the turn signals?
