The side marker lights on the Toyota Corolla help provide additional visibility when you are driving, particularly when make changing lanes. Your side marker lights are set up to illuminate at the same time your blinker does. This allows drivers around you to know when you are changing lanes beside them. Changing the side marker light on your Corolla is simple and only takes a few minutes.
