Before you go out and buy stuff, check out Leatherique. They can supply you with their Rejuvenator Oil and color-matched dye that won't rub off. Unless you have warped pieces, I'd try their excellent products. Thanks for the info. I ordered kit #2 but the dye came in to light. I guessed at the color and got it wrong. Any idea were I can find the color code for the leather of my 97' 993?
If it's not the ignition switch, do you possibly have the headlight switch pulled out (towards the rear of the car) one click and turned one click to the left (CCW) of the off position? That will cause the passenger's (right) side driving and parking lights to remain on (both front and rear), even with the key out of the ignition. If you don't have the headlight switch pulled out one click, but are still getting this, then consider the possibility that your headlight switch itself is faulty. Regards, Maurice. Thanks for that info. Maurice. I think your right about the headlight knob position. After I reconnected the battery the problem went away so I called my shop and they told me the problem was the European parking lights were activated. I didn't even know that this existed. He said it's for Europeans (who park on the left side) to alert other drivers when their parked by leaving just the right side driving lights on. Interesting. The only problem was when I tried to activate them again the knob simply popped off in my hand when i pulled it. Is there a trick to activating them?
Thanks for those tips. I have turned off the lights completely but still have the driving lights on the right side staying on even after the key is removed. Could it be a relay switch or fuse or maybe something in the steering column related to the turn signal lever?
I have a 97' C2 cab. When I parked it today I realized the right turn lights won't go off even when the key is turned off. Also the right blinkers are not working and the arrow indicator in the gauge stays on. I've had to disconnect the battery to prevent it from draining. Any help would be appreciated and hopefully save me a trip to my shop.
