When you say "it would not start", do you mean it will not crank(nothing happens when the key is turned)? or it will not start?( engine cranks but doesn't fire?) You need a new battery. I had the same problem with my 1989 Bonneville, It would start ou good but as soon as I pressed on the brakes, the car would turn off.

Check the fuses. There's usually a separate switch for the dash lights, which willmake them brighter or dimmer. It may be turned down too low. Check to make sure parking lights work as well, if they do not then could be the headlight switch as there was a recall on them.

Why wont my parking lights or my brake lights in my 95 Impreza go off even with the key out and the switches turned to off?

It could be a combination of two simple problems. First, check that your parking light switch on the top of your steering column is OFF, as this will keep the lights on even if the ignition switch is off. I believe this switch is necessary because your lights turn off automatically when you turn of the engine (ignition switch) Aslo, you must check your (combination tail light and brake light) rear bulbs as this could cause the break and tail lights to remain on when the car is started (ignition is on). GOOD LUCK !
