The driver's side parking light on my 1991 Volvo 240 is not working. Bulb is ok. Turn signal and head lights working fine.

Mechanic says it is most likely a corroded wire inside an "assembly" or "harness" in the engine compartment?

  • What would I need to do or have replaced?
  • How expensive could it be?

There are some other issues with this car, so it might not be worth it.

  • Too many possibilities to answer concisely, voting to close.

The most likely place for corrosion to occur is at the bulb socket. Take the light bulb assemble apart and inspect the socket and the wires going to it. Have a look here, this bulb should be "push and twist" to remove.
