the inside turnsignal in the right headlight does not come come on when i have the headlights on. but when i go to make a turn and use the blinker it blinks. why would it not be on when the headlights are on? i didn't know if i needed a new bulb because it works when i use it to signal. is there something wrong with it, or do i just need a new bulb?

try removing the bulb and turning turning it 180 degrees....sometimes i have noticed with the 3157 bulbs they will work on one side better than the other

Many bulbs have two filiments for two functions. In you example, turn signal and parking lights (on with headlights). You may have one filiment out, and need a new bulb. Since it works on turns, I would guess that the wiring and socket are ok.
