    LOL. EVERYONE has experienced that!

    There's a switch on top of the steering column.

    LOL. When it happened to me I actually called the dealer to schedule the car in for service. They asked "did you get your car washed today?" I did. LOL

    I know that switch all too well. The first time I used it I got back in my car and turned it off. About a mile down the road I start smelling something buring. I start sniffing around and notice smoke coming from the switch. I turned off the car andwaited a while and everything seemed fine. I took it into the dealer and I ended up in a rental for 4 days waiting on parts due to my car being "unsafe to drive".

    I've been a little hesitant to use the parking lights recently.
