Check the switch on top of the steering column.

You're going to feel like a complete moron when you discover
1) The "problem" is a switch on your steering column being in the on position

2) Instructions for the use of this switch are clearly covered in your owners manual.



Trust me on this one, you'll almost regret posting here on i-club after every one and their sister gives you

Not a "ha ha", more of a RTFM.

That got me one day too....

I had just taken my car to be washed & detailed... drove home... started to walk inside and realized my parking lights were still on....

I just started to call one of my knowledgable friends.. and it hit me......I was like... son of a bit#$!

When they washed the inside of my car, the guy must have flipped that switch......

It was pretty funny... and I felt like a moron.

Oh well.... It won't ever happen again, I can tell you that!
