Thats what im thinking, i just don't know where to start.. it could be at the parking lights, or the headlight switch or anywhere else. I hate electrical stuff sometimes

just to verify, did you check the fuse I suggested? did you remove it and test it? the fact that the lights and all are activating with the lock fob is an interesting tidbit. is the lock system aftermarket or OEM?

They flash with the alarm/lock because it is feeding power in after the fuse and switch in the cab. Which means, either the fuse or the switch is bad. My bet is still the fuse, try a new one anyway.

Well I went out and checked the fuse expecting to be right and I was but I still pulled it out just to double check. So I pull it out and one of the prongs on the fuse is cracked and not really connected. I popped a new one in and it lights right up. Thanks everyone this was really starting to piss me off. Never expected a cracked fuse.
