They come on with the turn signals when your headlights are on.

Yes. Drivers side with left turn signal and passenger side with right turn signal with headlights on.

The one shown looks like the step light. But not familiar with the PT setup.

Dave1690:

In case you want to track down some wiring issues with your cornering lights, here is a picture of the control box for the capacitors and relays along with a pdf showing the wiring diagram. The capacitors and relays permit the cornering light to remain on while the turn signal flashes.

On my coach (85PT40), the control box is in the generator battery storage compartment.


Hope this is a help.

If you haven't upgraded to having relays driving your headlights, I suggest it strongly. The difference is... Well.. err... Night and day. Happy to help you do it up here in Houston, but I don't really have a spot to park it.

And I've learned about the cornering lights tonight. Thanks for asking the question.
