Lights staying on
 
I got my car washed today and since then, whenever I turn off the car my blinker lights are on in both the front and rear. Anyone know the cause of this, or how to fix it?

Thanks!

On my car there is a little driving lights switch on the top of the steering column. Should be the same on yours. Make sure its off. Other than that i have nothing for you man. Sorry

thats it...im sure, everyone seems to run into this pita
I have read its there because of all the double parking required in Japan and nobody seems to know why the usdm's have them.

So that you can leave the parking/marker lights on without leaving the key in the ignition. Since the lights automatically turn off with the key this is a very good idea.

Yeah, but sux when its bumped and not realized until its too late and the battery has already taken a dump.

Happened to me when I took my gauge and dash apart...I thought I had put something together wrong, took me about 15 min to realize it was that switch lol

so funny! this happened to me a week ago, i had the car detailed and when i got it back i went to work and came out and my car was dead. The people left the switch on and it killid my battery! 1 AAA call and a police escort on the naval base later my car was up and running and i didnt know what was wrong till my best friend made me feel like a super noob and flipped the switch back for me. gotta love friends that work for subaru :P

I bumped mine when I was cleaning my dash.
