headlights, running lights always on

2001 C4 110k km Canadian car

The car should have daytime running lights because it is a Canadian car but all the lights are on with the headlamp switch in the off position. Headlights tail lights etc. When I move it clockwise to parking lamp position the interior gauge lights come on, in the night time position there is no change all lights remain on. The headlamp switch doesn't turn anti-clockwise to the rear park position. Any suggestions on what to check?

P.S. update on the "dead" radio issue I had, the is a 10 amp fuse on the backside of the radio where the harness plugs in that had failed, the radio works now, which is a good thing because I can't hear the front end rattle anymore !!!

That's SOP, absolutely normal, for Canadian DRL specifications.

After owning a 99 of Canadian origin I modified my 2001 C4 to operate the street/parking/tail/DRL lamps the same way. Except the '01 has specialty european 5 watt halogen DRLs instead of using the HID headlamps. I replaced the 5 watt halogens with 3 watt Luxeon LEDs with a collimator lens.

Thanks for the reply, just so i understand, in your experiance the HID should be on when the switch is in the off position, my car doesn't appear to have the 5 watt hallogen DRL, the HID are on as the DRL in the vertical off position.
