no parking light

Im confused,I tried new bulb,new socket light bulb,all the connection seem to be ok.but I can't get the right side parking light to work.I suspect it could be to that I need a new break light switch.because the ASR/BAS indercator light on the dash is always lit along with the light indercator is telling me that I have a light out.and not to mention that I turn the light switch to the left I have no lights.

Which bulbs

Front or rear?
And do the left ones work as expected (both front and rear)?
Do the same bulbs light duirng normal operatin (on each side)?

Next step is a fuse; other cars protect left and right circuits with different fuses, so I wouldn't be surprised if similar applied on teh SLK.
