Default Bumper light/Corner light/Fender light

hey HT. i am trying to wire my bumper light so it can stay on at night along with the corner and fender lights. i've manage to get the corner and fenders light to come on but im not able to get the bumper light to come onto.

so my question is which wire do i have to wire onto my bumper light? or what do i have to do? any info will help. thanks in advance.

CRX? Bumper lights are turn signals only, are they not? If you wire them to be on all the time, what the heck will you use for turn signals?

Honestly, I wouldn't even try it. Those housings are not meant to have a 21-watt turn signal bulb filament on all the time, and the housing will eventually melt or deform, and probably short out the light socket.

You could try removing the socket and rigging up a dual-filament turn/park bulb (3-wire socket). Then just tap the power wire for the 5-watt filament off of your corner light wiring. That way you would still retain proper turn signal operation, and not worry about melting or shorting out anything.
