My best guess there is a switch on the older models for turning the parking lights on without the headlight switch and it was located on the top of the steering column cover

Car was off...parking light, tail light, and directional arrow inside came on and wont turn off?


Maybe the battery inside key fob needs changing. It sounds like its to do with the alarm / immobiliser.

Key won't turn, won't shift from Park


My 2003 Saturn l200 2.2 ecotec did this when the battery was dead. Put some juice on the battery, then the car came out of park, and I was able to remove the key. To the car, there's a vast difference between a sluggish battery and a dead battery. It may have enough amps to crank it, but it wont start w/out full output from the battery.

TRANSMISSION CABLE


On my '96 Olds 98, brake transaxle shift interlock is simply a pain in the ***. Solution: always press foot brake AND parking brake hard and hold while shifting into park and shutting down engine. Try not to park "downhill." Read owners manual;"shifting out of park." This even calls for opening and shutting the door! If you can't start in park, try neutral. If all else fails, unhook red battery cable for a minute. Re-attach and restart car, which should re-set computer to recognize your key, which has a computer chip embedded in it. Worst option EVER invented!

unhook the battery for about 15 minutes that will reset it. be that as it may i would suggest that if the engine died when you unhooked the battery.... it was the alternator that should have been replaced NOT the battery.

Interior lights stay on when the switch is off and car is parked


is the door ajar light on sometimes also when driving? I had a similar problem with the light staying on. I determined that it was the passenger front door latch sticking. I opened the door, then took a screwdriver to push the latch shut on the door jamb. (Make the truck think the door is shut even though it is open). Then lubricate that jamb and pull the handle open to open the door. Keep doing this (closing with screwdriver and opening with handle) until the latch works freely. This took care of my light and door ajar problem.

Parking lights on 1994 Buick lesabre


sounds like a sticking relay... check the relays for either parking lights or headlights.... i believe that model car also has a timer to shut them off after a certain time automatically.
