I just went through the same thing. You multi function switch is either all gobbed up with grease and it may possibly help to uninstall it, clean it back up and reinstall, or the second solution, which was unfortunately my fix, was to replace the dang thing.

The excess grease they put on during installation shorts out the switch when reacting with metal shavings that may get mixed in with wear and tear.

Here is a complete illustration with pics on how to take it out, hope this help

Do you mean the running lights on your car like the parking lights when the headlights are off? look at your knob for turning on your lights and see if they are turned all the way off. some cars have knobs that have another knob that surrounds it and is part of the entire light switch and if you don't turn off that particular other knob along with the entire light switch your lights stay on. I don't know what else to tell you other than, dealer.

The left rear turn signal on my 1998 Aurora will not flash. According to the Owners manual the correct lamp is a 3057. I have tried 2 new 3057 bulbs they light up but won't flash. The right turn...

Normally, it means either the front or the rear bulb is burned out. If front and rear bulbs are good, and that means both lamp filaments in both bulbs are good. It could be the flasher, a bad ground, a bad bulb socket, or the turn signal switch.

I have a 96 aurora, headlights brake lights, blinkers,and hazards work but taillights and dash lights went out. if car sits for awhile (day-week) lights work again untill blinker is turned on then they go...

There's a running light controller under the dash next to the steering collum that cost a little over $100. It fails and it's the only way to fix it right and it might happen again too.

Parking lights will not shut off but the headlamps do

There is a "perimeter lighting" feature that keeps the lights (parking & backup) on for a period of time when it is dark and you lock the car. Check the setting - ref owners manual DIC controls.
