parking lights warning when turning key off

Recommended Posts

I just picked up a 2009 Turbo, 33K miles.  The car is in pristine condition looks almost brand new.  One item has come up.  Several times when turning off the car I get a message that the parking lights are on, when they aren't.  Doesn't happen everytime but has cropped up.  Any ideas, bad headlight switch?  I am going to double check but it may occur after I have had the driving lights on, so I am going to try to see if there is a correlation.  Only mod to the car is a passport radar detector which has already saved my wallet some pain.

 

Any idea on place to start looking at?

Try disconnecting the radar detector power connection and see if the problem goes away.

I don't think I have turned the car off with the turn signal engaged.  I know the radar detector is on a switched circuit so its not tied into the lights also.

If you park the car with the turn signal engaged, it will illuminate the parking likes on that selected side, and give you an audible warning. Possibly your model also gives you that dash notice, too. This is a safety feature for European owners who park on small narrow streets.
