Question about 1998 Oldsmobile Aurora
Lately I have had a couple of instance where the parking lights come on and stay on when the car is off. This first happened to my wife about 8 months ago, she went out to go to work and the battery was dead. Obviously I blamed her for leaving the lights on, big mistake, I'm still not living that one down.
I noticed that when this occurs, which is not all the time, a buzzing sound was comming from under the dash. After investigating this I found that there are 2 plastic enclosures just above the steering column that contain circuit boards. the one on the right has four small contactors, one of which buzzes and while it does this the security indicator on the dash is on and the parking lights are on. There are two conectors going into this circuit board, if I unplug either one the buzzing stops but the headlights dont work.
MSchmdt1702 I just fix this problem. I had to replace the switch that the turn signal handle plugs into. The switch cost about 450 from the dealer. I'm sorry I can not remember what the exact name of the part. If I find it I will post it
