1984 cj7 parking light issue

My passenger side, front parking light is out during normal "on" periods. With the headlights on or parking lights on, it is out. But when the turn signal is initiated for that side, it flashes properly, and with hazards initiated it flashes properly. I have tried to see if it is the light itself, and it is not. I am sure there is relay somewhere, but where should I look. Under the dash or in the engine compartment? Any ideas of name and/or part numbers for it? Thanks in advance

The parking light and the turn signal are separate circuits so the Parking light filament can be broke while the turn signal filament still works fine .

You might just have a bad bulb in there. There could be other problems but lets check the simple stuff first.

Take out the two screws, (don't lose them, they are a special type) and remove the bulb and visually check the filaments to see if they are broke or use an ohm meter to check.

Many new cars now have separate turn signal and running lights so it's not surprising not to realize this.
