I was just wondering if anyone uses the parking light switch?

I know that when you turn the parking lights on with the swicth, the dash lights do not dim. The downside, is if you are the RS off, the lights stay on.

I know at least of person that pulled a fuse to get the lights turned off (no that was not me), because they didn't realize they had turned the parking lights on when they were cleaning the car.

I never do, but now that I think about it, it could be used as an anti-theft on-off switch if wired through the ignition instead of the lights. :D

not anti-theft now! :lol: we all know about it!

to stay on topic, when i go through a tunnel and i don't feel like turning on my lights, i'll hit that switch.

I've used it on the one time I've been pulled over at night in the scoob. (knock on wood) Lowered the window, turned car off, and put those lights on. And I got a warning as well. :biggest:

And I like the tunnel idea, I'll have to start using that.

Ya, I use it when I need to park my car on the street and run into my place to get something. Which happens a surprising amount of times.

I use it because it`s there. For me it`s the equivalent of buying a new stereo and it comes with all those buttons and you use every single button not because they really do anything but because theyre there!

I like it, for when I want to be seen, but I also need to see the instrument panel. Since the instrument panel does not dim when you use it.

I never thought of the tunnel....that would be good too. More so, since they sometimes have lights on during the day.
