Have you checked the bulbs yet. US rangers don't have DRLs by the way.

So they do not come on when you turn the headlight switch one click instead of 2 clicks?

DRL's are only mandatory in Canada. Not all US-spec vehicles are equipped with them.

However,if you're saying they don't work now,yours have obviously worked before then. Could be just the relay has gone bad.

I know my truck has gone through 2 DRL relays,and has just gone through it's 3rd,but I am not replacing it,since I turn my full lights on day or night.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh..............gotcha now.

So you're corner lights are not coming on at all. There we go, that's a little easier to figure out and answer. LOL

As mentioned, check in your owners manual and find which fuses (both in the dash and under the hood) that have the corner lights on them and check those fuses. With both corner lights not working, chances of a blown fuse would be your issue.

Keep us posted on what you find. We like to hear when problems are resolved. We all sleep better at night...LOL
