My cornering lights don't come on when the ignition is on. Upon taking the cornering light apart I can get the bulb to light up but will not work when reassembled. Any suggestions.

I don't have them but it is my understanding that they only come on with the turn signals. Had they been working and stop or had they never worked?

Also, it appears we are almost neighbors. I am just south of Sacramento. I believe we are the only two around here with 1500's.

I believe the 98 to 2000 the corning lights are on all the time. Are both sides out? Could be a grounding issue.

Yes, the '98-'00 are on all the time.
If it works when disassembled, but not when put back together, it does sound like you have a short somewhere.

It's never too late to have a happy childhood!
