In my experiences with Aerostars, your "problem" is actually a feature. It is a safety measure to ensure that you can see to your destination without tripping on things if they shut off after let's say 3-5 minutes it is just a feature to ensure your safety. Reading the owner's manual or investing in a Haynes Repair Manual will further investigate this "problem" and give you a solution.
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.
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.
What light? Headlights / Parking lights can only be turned off while in park. turn the engine off, set the parking brake. Start the engine..... as soon as you remove the parking brake the lights will come back on
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
Can't say for sure on the 2007, but my 2000 has a rocker switch at the top of the steering column to turn the parking lights on when the key is off.
its on timed delay, lights stay on or come on while exiting vehical to make it easier
make sure your dash light dim control switch is not turned all the way up. they are usually found in the dash on the drivers side or on the same control as the headlights. see your owners manual for further information. Usually, instrument panel lights ["dashboard lights"] are turned on and off WHEN the headlights or parking lights are turned on or off. Since the head lights and tail lights are NOT powered through the ignition switch, and therefore can be turned on even while the ignition switch is turned off and the key removed, so are the instrument lights. WHILE the head lights OR the parking lights are turned ON, "brightness" control of the instrument lights is accomplished by ROTATING the headlight switch KNOB. A FULL CLOCKWISE rotation of the headlight switch knob will FULLY DIM THE INSTRUMENT LIGHTS. Full counterclockwise rotation [ONLY to the "DETENT STOP"] will adjust the instrument lights to full bright. NO POSITION of this switch causes the INSTRUMENT lights to remain ON. IF the knob is turned a little more forcefully COUNTERCLOCKWISE, PAST THE DETENT, then the interior courtesy lights and the dome light will be turned ON. IF your instrument lights remain ON, suggests that you have not FULLY turned OFF the headlight and/or parking light switch. If, as answer 1 suggests, you have a SEPERATE control switch for the instrument panel lights, then it may be possible that that switch does have a FULL-ON position which keeps the instrument lights on continuously, regardless of headlight/parking light switch status. As Answer 1 suggests, your Owner/Operator Manual should explain how your particular vehicle's instrument lights are controlled. If you do not have your Manual, find someone who has a car identical to yours and ask them, or look at their Manual. If you can't find someone, try a dealership used car lot for a vehicle like yours. j3h
The switch on the top of your steerin wheel is turned on instead of off The switch on the top of your steerin wheel is turned on instead of off
The switch is probably bad or you aren't turning the knob all the way off.
Check bulbs Check fuse for parking/tailights Check brake light fuse
ignition will be turned off and keys left in ignition, transmission placed in park (automatic) or reverse (manual), parking brake set, parking lights/emergency flashers on
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.
sounds like a bad light switch.
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.
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.
Check the bulbs - they are double filamented larger for tailights and smaller for stop/turn Check the fuse for parking/tail and dash lights
do you have an aftermarket security system installed in it?
Parking lights may stay on after a BMW is turned off because the headlight is bad. A faulty relay could also cause this problem.
Most likely because the switch is stuck in one position. Find the switch and repair or replace.
