This may seem like a really dumb question, but...
Does anyone know what the "parking lights" are for?! I never even knew I had them, but I took my car to the car wash today, and I guess after rubbing down the inside of the car, the guy hit the parking lights. I drove home & went inside, and when my wife came home, she told me my lights were on. "That's impossible," said I, "because my lights turn themselves off!"
Well, I was wrong. Evidently the parking lights which, if you don't know, are activated by flipping a switch on top of the steering column, don't turn off when the key is removed.
Anyway, what's the point of these lights? I'm certain there's a perfectly good function for them, but I really can't think of why I would want a separate switch for a set of dim lights that don't turn off with the rest of the lights.
