which lights are which

rewiring 80 after a couple years sitting and not sure which lights are what. Im thinking side lights are marker only or turn also. tail lights all 4 parking lights, inside 2 brake, outside 2 turn lights. front 2 parking, turning or both?

I don't believe the stock lights are wired into the turn signal circuit. I like the idea of doing that though.

Front side marker lights are wire into the tursignal grounds so they blink opposit of the turnsignals. Also if one of the front side marker lights are bad, the blinker in that side blinks faster.

You are correct on the rear though, they are wired in the same circuit as the tail lights

After changing all of this, you still can't get your aim. This might be due to you change/check one of these:
Racing battery pc-680
warning and shift lights
ignition switch panel

racing car seats
