The pre 99 cars need dual filament bulbs in these side marker lights, and the new sockets do not have the sescond pin for it. I re-used my old sockets and changed the color of the bulb to amber but witih dual filaments. Its worked perfectly since then. I have read that if you don't have the roght bulb type or socket you can get this message.
