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 !

Why do lights go bright dim when on?

i dont know maybe your lightbulb is messed up. There could be many possibilities depending on the situation. If a high wattage unit comes on (like an air conditioner), there could be a drain on the system that causes a light to dim. Sometimes during a storm, there could be a problem at the power substation including a power surge or break in the system, that could cause lights dimming. If too many strands of lights in a series are connected, you run the risk of overloading that circuit, which could cause dimmed and blown lights, and potentially dangerous situations. Consult a Master Electrician for more information.
