you've got something touching ground(short) somewhere, you'll need some basics electrical diagnosis to check...could be the light switch a manual will help with an image of the wiring, but I'd pull all the covers off and physically check all the bulbs...pop-em out and back in again...also, does it have an alarm installed... also an alarm that has a circuit to flash the lights when armed or disarmed may be to blame... good luck also ...everyone should have a manual for their vehicle, and the library should have a professional shop manual available for FREE to make copies up and repair like a PRO!

Why do the parking lights stay on on your 09 Subaru legasy?

What is the Subaru parking light switch used for?

The short answer would be to turn on the parking lights.However, here's a little more detail. Subaru has begun designing cars that turn off accessories when the ignition is cut off. This includes cigar lighter plugs, headlights, parking lights, etc. The switch on top of your steering column is to allow you to bypass the system and turn on your parking lights when the ignition is off...which would be useful if you broke down on the side of the road at night.
