Good afternoon lads.

I have a quick question for yall. Last night the car displayed "check stop light" message. After a quick inspection I was able to spot that one of the front signal/emergency lights burned out. I inspected the car and found where to get access to the light. However I see no bulb or a way to just replace the part.
Any help is appreciated.
I will attach a picture for better understanding.
Thanks in advance

I think I'm missing something. Is one of the stop lights out? I don't have a 500L, but I thought the turn signal was below the headlight. However, I checked around and I guess there is a turn signal bulb there!

Here's what I found:

Changing the turn signal/Parking and Daytime Running Lamps on a Fiat 500L


Turn front wheels inboard to access upper cover in wheel liner.
Open the upper cover on the front of the wheel liner.
Remove the cap from the back of the lower headlamp housing.
Rotate the bulb counter clockwise and remove.
Install the bulb into socket, and rotate bulb/socket clockwise into lamp locking it in place.
Reinstall the plastic cap and close the cover on the wheel liner.

I thought the same thing too but the stop lights are working properly and you are correct the turn signal is below the headlight however when your headlights are on those "orange lights" turn on as well however to be honest i dont know the real purpose of those lights. I will post a picture later when its dark for yall to have an idea.
Thanks for the response.

I found some more info and posted it. I see it listed as a turn signal/daytime running light/ parking light. Does it blink?

Hi ramonhawk,

Thats the front side marker light. There should be a size 194 bulb in there. Just turn the socket to the left to unlock it from the housing and then pull it out and switch out the bulb.
