2000 Subaru Forester Question: Why won't my parking lights turn off?

 

Question

I had my car washed today and since then my front and rear parking lights will not turn off. Could this be the result of getting the car washed? It's never happened before.

    If your car is a Subaru, the wash attendant probably flipped the rocker switch located on the top of the steering column, between the steering wheel and the dash. If your car is not a Subaru, it is possible the car wash got the lights wet, and when you turned on the lights the fuse blew. Have the fuse for the park lights inspected. If the park lamp lens is cracked, that is how the water got the bulb and socket wet.

    Whoever this is, I owe you a big one. I have an '07 Subaru Impreza and you nailed it!
    Thanks,
