Hi rodknob,

What are side lights ? are they a parking light ?
Think you need to wire the side light switch feed wire to a relay and have the relay power on when the car has Accessory Power from the key Switch accessory wire.
Using a delay relay means the lights can stay on for up to 660 seconds after you turn off the car accessory key switch.
Did a car with a normal relay off accessory wire as I use to forget the headlights and flatten battery.

Or you might be able to use
but you would need to ask them how to wire it to the headlight switch and if it turns on the headlights in the dark or inclement weather.
Like my
You might need to use a relay to feed the power to the headlight switch depends on current involved .
Holden commodore cruise does this as a standard feature via an auto headlight setting on the headlight switch..

If it is the solenoid (most likely) remove the right rear break light cover and the inner cover behind it.
There is another adjoining cover over the fuel tube. There are two plastic clips holding it to the car. Twist them clockwise and release the plastic fuzzy sound cover. I was not able to take this cover out, but you need to manipulate it so you can get your hand behind it and reach up and towards the fuel cover. There is a wire pair (mine was covered in foam) which attaches to the rear of the solenoid. The solenoid is positioned horizontally. Find where the wires are attached and reach around to the front. There you should find the plunger and pull it back towards the rear of the car. This should release the fuel cover lock. It did for me. Good luck!

The thermostat, and radiator are under the hood, not under the dash, you might be sure you have enough anti-freeze, in the radiator and reservoir. if not refill to the proper levels, if it heats up after that, check for leaks, if none exist, you might need water pump, or have a leaky head gasket.

First change fuel filter and then change air filter. A turbo requires good air flow to spool-up correctly

You need new tailgate struts. Most auto parts stores sell them. Just stick a broom stick under the tailgate and remove the ceiling panel and unsnap the old ones and snap the new ones in. Make sure to install them exactly the way they were before you started.

Try the fuel injection relay they are located under the hood. They blow out every few years on my Volvo. The car starts to quit all of the sudden. It is either red or green colored. It is located in the fuse box under the hood.

The first thing you must do is have the computer control module for the engine scanned for fault codes.

Is the vehicle in park ? Your vehicle like all vehicles have safety systems that won't allow the vehicle key to be turn off and locked if the vehicle is in gear and running . How ever this systems can malfunction . There is a lock out soleniod in the column or the console if floor shifter . The first place to start would be to have it checked for DTC's - diagnostic trouble codes . These codes can cut diagnostic time down a bunch . Or there could be a problem the ignition lock cylinder ! If no codes are present taking the steering wheel off to get out the lock cylinder and replacing it . You may be better of taking it to a repair shop .
