    I read the manual(s) cover-to-cover whenever I bring a new car home. It's getting harder with increased complexity (longer manuals), but I still do it.

    The manual explains that the switch on the steering column in the middle on top activates the parking lamps.

    It's rarely used. I wonder if someone removed the cover to the steering column where the switch is mounted for some other reason and damaged the switch.
