Front Marker lights not working

I have a 2001 525

I cannot get the front marker lights in the headlights to work. The turn signal portion seems to work fine.

I replaced the bulbs with the correct ones again last night and they are still not working. I don't see anything obvious. The wiring looks fine. Maybe there is a fuse? the rear marker lights are working though.

All exterior lights are controlled by the light control module (LKM); there are no individual fuses.

Check wiring and grounds. There is a big ground shoe on the right side of the engine compartment.

BTW, I believe you are referring to the parking lights.
