Default Need quick Help! Parking lights won't turn off

My parking lights will not turn off. I have cycled the wand a hundred times, tried messing with the parking brake switch, etc. I need some quick ideas, before my battery dies!

I have pulled the 10A Taillight fuse which, of course, turns off the lights. Can someone tell me where the relay is located for the taillights, or suggest some other ideas? Thanks!

I have no idea what deja vu you are talking about, but anyway, that was really helpful.

Thanks, Jorge, it is clearly not something for the owner's manual. I'll just have them replace the relay tomorrow.
take care,
rob

Parking lights are pretty common in Europe. They are usually used when you are parked along narrow roads so people see your car at night. On most European cars they work a little differently than over here; when the ignition is off you can turn the parking lights on by using the turn lever. This way you only have the lights on on the side that is sticking out into the road. You also get a rear fog light over there.
