Realized today while checking my 'new' car, that I had no parking or tailights...I was aware of the switch on the steering column, and that it allowed the park lights on with the key off. And with this switch ON, all the lights work. I actually thought for a minute that maybe that was how its supposed to be? But I read the owners manual and searched the threads here about all the unintentional use of that funky switch...Hmmm. I'll spend a little more time on it tomorrow, Im thinking bad contacts in the 'normal' headlamp switch, or maybe there is a seperate fuse for park lights when turned on with that switch, opposed to being fused directly to the battery on the column switch. I just wondeed if this was a common failure that may save me some time. Hey, as long as I remember to turn BOTH switches on, everything is fine....

oh sily me

from looking at the wiring diagram, there seem to be a relay that the "dead battery switch" bypasses.

I would look for that relay.
