I got into my car today and noticed that the parking and headlights only turn on while the key is in the ON position. I remember being able to turn them on wether the car is on or off. Anyone know whats wrong?

Interesting problem. I don't think it would be a fuse as that would typically cause one or more headlights to not work at all, but it's worth checking anyway. I'm not too clued up on the electrical system, but it sounds like a problem with a constant power wire from the battery. Do your emergency hazard lights still work with the key out of the ignition?

Here's a diagram of the engine bay fusebox that I just scanned from my factory owner's manual:

Thanks just what I needed. The hazard lights work without the key. Another thing normaly if the engine is on and I leave the lights on, they will turn off when I open the door. Now they just go off as soon as I turn the engine off. :ugh3: :confused:

Then its the relay that turns the lights off when you open the doors. Its stuck in the off position.
