Default Running lights won't turn off.

Need some help. Regardless of the position of the headlight switch, my running lights stay on even when the car is turned off.
I'm completey baffled. In addition, the only time the stereo light work is when the car is on, but the headlight switch is off. Oh, it gets better. The dash lights work when they're supposed to, but don't light up completely.
I'm starting to think that my car might be possesed.

I know this might be a shot in the dark, but does anyone have a clue what it could be?

Thanks.

as for the running lights, try turning off the switch on top of the steering column.

On the end of the headlight lever, there is a knob to adjust the brightness of the dash lights. The stereo also dims when the headlights are turned on, so it might just be that you can't see the light during the daytime when the lights are on.

You really need to read your owners manual before you break something.
