    Help!!! Driving lights do not turn off.

    I have to pull a fuse to get the driving lights to go out.

    Do I have a bad switch? Where are they?

    Thanks

    Yes

    But when I pull the key they stay on.

    The rear lights and side markers stay on also.

    Only the headlights turn off.

    What a pain to put in fuse and take out every place I stop!

    Is the button on top of the steering column pushed the wrong way?

    Didn't the dealer give you a basic rundown of what everything did on the car before you left? I know that I asked about everything on mine before I left. Its the switch on top of the steering wheel.

    Sounds like your salesman was an idiot (no offense!) I asked about it too and my (non-commission) saleman told me that if I wanted to leave the parking lights on when the car was not on, that switch would do just that, but told me not to forget to turn it off, or better yet, just not use it at all.

    FYI, apparently this feature is used a lot in Europe... where double parking is allowed and/or you may be parking in a poorly lit area. I've personally used it in neighborhoods that have no street lights (but not for more than a few hours).

    Link below for the other discussion on this (don't credit me)


    what does this button do?

    alright, so they're used to double park in europe. Then what are hazards for there? Actual hazards?

    I kid.

    Either way, they are useless, poorly located, make good batteries die and should be disconnected.

    Bah humbug. I like it, but mostly because I like gadgets in general and I don't trust other drivers in dark neighborhoods.

    Hmmm hazards in europe - if double parking isn't one of them, certainly triple parking

    drivers routinely use hazards in traffic jams to warn cars behind them of impending problems. It's a good idea and we should do it here.
