The brake lights will stay on if the switch is either out of adjustment or damaged. Pull up on the brake pedal to see if it will go out, if it does, you might be able to get by just adjusting the position of the brake light switch. BTW, it's on the brake pedal mechanism, under the dashboard.

The parking lights are turned on when the headlights are on and you pull out on the light switch. The parking lights cannot be turned on by themselves.

if you leave the parking lights switch "ON" the lights will remain on, even if the car has been turned off.

If you leave the indicators on when the ignition is off the sidelights or parking lights will be turned on. Just an alternative to leaving all the parking lights on in order to save battery use. Eg if you are parked in a poorly lit area for a while.

The most likely answer is that the parking light switch on top of the steering column is turned on. --Ken The parking light switch is turned off,the engine is turned off,they are still flashing

Between your steering wheel and your instrument panel on your steering column, you will find a small rocker switch that controls the parking lights. I can't tell you why it is there, but it does turn the parking lights off and on independent of the ignition and headlight switch.

Most likely the battery is weak and dying. Enough voltage and current to make the solenoid barely engage (clicking in and out), but plenty of current and voltage for the radio and some of the lights.

Some Subarus have a switch on the top of the steering column that turns on the parking lights. Hopefully this is the problem and would be an easy fix. Daniel

That's how 1964 1/2 thru 1967 Mustangs lights are designed to operate.. when the headlamps are turned on the amber parking lights are turned off. That was changed sometime in 1967-68 so that the amber parking lights remain on when the headlamps are on.. It is possible to install a later model (1968) type headlight switch and wiring if you really want the parking lights to remain on when the headlamps are on however. Electrical Wiring drawings are available (to purchase) for every year mustang from almost any mustang restoration shop/website.

There is a switch on top of the steering column dead center. You must have accidently turned it on. It's a parking light.

There is a second light switch that activates the parking lights without the key being on. It is on top of the steering column behind the steering wheel. If this switch is turned off and the lights remain on when the key is off, there is a malfunction in this circuit.

The parking lights may stay on because the headlights have not been turned off completely. If the car is parked, the key is out of the ignition, and the headlights are turned all the way off, the issue is in your electrical system. It will need to be taken to a mechanic to be tracked down and repaired.

I have a 2006 Pacifica. If yours is equipped with fog lights, grab the end of the left light control tree, and pull firmly. Then, have the parking lights or headlights turned on. You can't have just the fog lights on.

Had the same problem. Bought a re-conditioned alternator, turned out it was bad. Usually if battery draining, it's alternator or battery or both.

Check the bulbs - they are double filamented larger for tailights and smaller for stop/turn Check the fuse for parking/tail and dash lights
