Sorry I never thought of them a position light just turn signal lights. The position light is 12V3cp (8W), turn signal is 12V32cp (23W). You must make sure it's the right bulb as the same bulb # has 2 different watts listed for the position light, if you get the higher wattage one it will melt the lens of the turn signal. I hope this helps. :mrgreen:

Thanks! I can't seem to find what number bulb to ask for though. You would think it had a # like 1157etc. I'll have to take it out and go to the auto store to match up.

I checked my owners manual and it lists the bulb as a #1034 for turn signal front and a 1073 for the rear, since the bulb is a 2 stage make sure that the listing for the position light is 8 watt only, as I have in the past found that some MFG. use a different watage for the position even though the bulb # is the same. Look at the base of the bulb it should be listed at what the wattage is, as I said befor if to high of wattage it will melt the lens of the turn signal. Hope this will help. Bob :mrgreen:
