Parking Lights wont turn off

I drove home from work in extremely heavy rain. When I exited my 98 aurora the parking lights were still on and the ding-dong alarm when the door was open let me know they were on. The problem is I have adjusted the light switches and turned off and restarted the car, but the lights are still on and draining my battery. How can I get the turned off?


  • I think this problem was solved and also documented really well with a procedure and photos at the website:

    The problem is caused by a small amount of grease inside the turn signal lever slowly flowing over time between the electrical contacts inside the turn signal - intermittently shorts-out the headlights or parking light switches.
