The front park lights on my XH ute don't come on. The rear tailights come on in the first position on the head light switch, but no front park lights.
Any suggestions on cause / repair ?

Thanks

Although it'd be pretty rare to find both bulbs blown, do that first.
Then if needed, check the power and earths to the holders - again I doubt the earths would be suspect (not impossible though), as I'd think they would be separate. If power is an issue, I'd suspect somewhere between the drivers headlight and the park light relay (near the handbrake) - probably loose wire or dodgy plug.

NP. The 12v line from the relay to the headlights does have an interconnector, up near the inside firewall - probably need to drop the BEM to get to it.
However, check the easier things first, and also confirm where the fault is.
