Default Parking lights

No parking lights... Have verified current coming out of the headlight switch...the terminal bar infer the drivers side has no power, if I jump a hard wire from the body hot to the parking list terminal they come on....so something between the switch and the terminal? Any issues running a new wire from the switch to the terminal?

A new wire is good, however, you still need to locate and disconnect both ends of the old wire. Otherwise you will have a broken live wire somewhere and it could eventually short to ground and burn any other wires touching it, or worse yet, start a fire. If at all possible try to follow the wire and locate the failure point. It is likley worn through from touching a sharpe edge.

It could also be a simple connector plug contact problem.

The clearance lights are on their own circuit with a seperate switch, that's below the shift pad, next to the driving light switch.
