Question about 1999 Oldsmobile Aurora
Driving lights came on by their self and caused battery to go dead. Battery was tested and is good. Hearing a strange clicking noise around the stirring wheel.
Don't replace the entire switch, clean any of the relays or take the switch apart. You'll notice at the back of that switch where wires are attached to the blades that they are exposed. My guess is that you'll also notice the tilt steering wheel "release" is bare metal and in very close proximity. Insulate the lever with something (I cut apart a plastic water bottle, melted it in half, then fused the ends with a butane soldering torch) and put everyhting back together). The blades at the back of the switch are arcing across to the tilt lever.

This is a common problem for that vehicle. the lights on/off switch is going bad. It's the left arm coming from the steering column with the: light control /cruise control /turn signal all in one.... replace (not real easy to do if unskilled)
