Hello wylierox...I think your "roo" has a rocker switch that is located on top the steering wheel assembly. It is kinda difficult to tell whether it is "on" or "off," i would check that first. If thats not the problem, then i'd check for a stuck relay that is keeping the circuit powered. Relay junction box is in the engine compartment mounted on wheel well. Circuit junction is under the instrument panel.
Good luck...i hope this helps.

This really sounds like a problem inside the light switch itself. You could try disconnecting the switch to test this. In the meantime, find the fuse in the fuse box that is for the park lights and pull that instead of fighting with your battery until it's fixed.

have you checked the battery? when they get too low, alternators will not always charge them. if you start the car, and disconnect the positive battery cable, the car should continue to idle.. if not, u need a new alternator.

My 1995 Chevy Tahoe brake light switch wont stay in position and the brake lights stay on. I replaced the switch and had the same problem.


Brake Light Switch REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Disable the SIR system (if equipped).
  3. Remove the clip (R/V Series) or unclip the switch (C/K Series) and unplug the electrical connector from the brake light switch.
  4. Remove the switch.
  5. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Left of the two headlight buttons for headlights and parking, there is a vertical slider. It's labeled Twilight, meaning twilight sentinel that keeps the headlights on. Move it down and that shortens the on time to about 5 seconds. If you are sittting with the headlights on and want them to go off, push it to the bottom and it turns the lights off immediately. They will turn back on when the car is put into park.

Move the slider to the top and they should stay on for about 5 minutes. BTW if you just leave the headlight switch pushed in (if you're doing it manually) the car turns everything off in about 10 minutes--inside lights, radio, lights, cigarette lighter power (unless you moved the fuse in the underhood fuse block to make them stay on permanently).

You also may not know that if you are driving or sitting and want the headlights off but the parking lights to stay on, push the Parking LIghts button. That turns the headlights off. I didn't find that for a while because our 98 LeSabre didn't have any way to turn off the headlights while cruising through a Christmas display scene in a park where many people turn off the headlights to help the effect of the colored lights. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
