If it's anything like my 92 Sunbird, (and they do have the same inherent problems), they are leaky cars (water wise) and it's probably wiring. There's a grounding problem it sounds like. I used to have a similar problem in my 92 when I used the cigarette lighter, it would blow the taillight fuse everytime. Replaced the cigarette lighter and problem went away. See, the cigarette lighter was rusted and the ground was faulty, so it would ground to the nearest fuse (which was taillight fuse) overload it, and blow the taillight fuse. Your parking lights are probably not grounded properly and it is doing the same thing my cigarette lighter was. Is it just me or are these cars just like the old Ford Tempo's and Dodge K cars, very reliable for the most part, but very leaky?!

there is no reason what ever for lights not to work at night unless they are controlled by a light sensor. if they are controlled by a light sensor then u need a light sensor. if you have to switch the lights on manually the switch is defrective ,but if this was the case they would not work during the day either

1994 Sunbird Left turn signal steady on when lights on or left turn Changed front bulb and side marker both ok What else to check?

I would check the parking lights,turn signals and side lights front and back.Its got to be one of them. It either don't blink,or don't come on at all or might have a short in the bulb itself. I own a Pontiac sunbird 1994 and if the problem is inside the cab more than likely I would say that its got to do with the signal selector and the relay switching in the steering colum its a hard part to come by. Literally you have to rip arpat the steering colum to get at it.
