Side Markers On

All lights work. Two lights that are on are on the passenger side: the far outside parking lamp on the front and the light just behind the rear wheel well. I refer to these as makers and do not blink. On some BMWs I understand it is these lights that are turned on by holding the turn signal in one direction for 2 seconds after the key is removed. It is a European thing to minimize battery drain when you park your car on narrow or crowded street by facing the burning lights on the road side only. This is the only relationship I can think of for these two lights being on.
