With the engine off and the key out I found my parking lights were on when the headlight switch was off but slightly dimmer along with the instrument panel light. The fog lights work with this condition as well when the switch is activated. The main headlight switch still operates normally otherwise. I have had computer problems in the past with the engine cutting off and had replaced several times with a remanufactured one. Stll have had issues with this replacement but not since I hit slightly with a hammer...Yes this is another problem that I have had after much troubleshooting with the wiring harness and connections and hope this new problem is not related to the computer but I know the security system is linked to the computer that causes the lights to flash when activated. Till this problem is solved I will disconnect the negitive side of the battery.

A number of reasons that dash lights will not come on. Let us start with the first. Do the parking lights come on on the outside of the vehicle when turning the switch on? If so, then I would suspect that you most likely have a bad dimmer switch. That is the switch that dims the dash lights. They commonly go out.
If the parking lights are not on then I would suspect a parking light fuse. If parking light fuse is good then I would suspect a headlight switch.
Most likely, based on experience with Neons, it is usually the dimmer switch. You can buy a dimmer switch on the internet or at your local auto parts store for a relatively decent price.
the key position has nothing to do with the lights staying on. That function is controlled by the headlight switch. Make sure the wires going to it are in the correct location. Sounds to me like you have 2 wires crossed. (dimmer working backwards)
The dimmer switch for the headlights only affect the headlights. The dimmer control for the dash lights only affect the dash lights. So if the parking lights are going off too, I would say its the headlight switch. Thats about the only thing that involves all three circuits. It could also be the harness plug at the headlight switch. BTW - the turn signal lights are another circuit from the parking lights.
No. Dash lights being out could be a bad headlight switch, since the dash lights are routed through the headlight switch, not the dimmer switch. Park and tail lights also controlled by the headlight switch.
Same issue also when the fuse blows i looks my electric seat controls. I found the problem was underneath the hood underneath both the fuse boxes it was a power wire pinched under a plate that holds the fuse boxes on. This wire probably wore through after 140,000 miles of rubbing and being pinched. tell me if it works for you Vehicle: 2003 impala
My '00 Subaru has a separate switch on the steering column for the parking lights, I never use it, but the lights will stay on with the key off. Look for a separate switch. If you find one ask the dealer for your $ back
The day time running lamps are your headlights, the parking lights also conventionally known as the running lights serve no purpose during daylight hours and as such are not necessary in the daytime, and are not illuminated by the DRL module. The DRL (Daytime Running Lights) module illuminates the headlamps in a slightly dimmer state than night time dim headlamps, but does not turn on the conventional running lights. The only way you'll get conventional running lights during the day is to turn them on manually. I just reviewed the wiring schematics for that system, and the DRL relay bypasses the dimmer switch when active and prevents high beam operation, and feeds current directly to the low beam headlights, there is no connection to the parking light circuit from the DRL module wiring.
