    If you're referring to the orange front markers in the corner of the headlights, then I think they are a legal requirement in the USA, so you should be able to activate them using software in VIDA.

    I could be wrong, but that's my understanding.

    The bulbs may just need replacing so I’d try that first. They should be the same as your front position/side lights, ie. 5w W5W bulbs.
