parking light

Post by Fozzfox72 » Tue 08 Oct, 2013 23:53

Hi all,
Does anyone know if there is a switch or control for a parking light?
I parked up today and when I came back to the car I noticed 1 small drivers side side light on.

I felt the light and it was a little hot too!!
Once the ignition was turned on it went out, never noticed it before. Since then I have looked all around the cabin but cant find a switch or control?
All lights do work correctly too as I checked them after, so no issues there.

Baffled....again :rtm:

Its funny I mentioned to somebody the other to leave his on
He didn't know that if you left the indicator on you had a parking light
Its something that's always been there as far as I can remember
If you did a survey, it would be interesting how many new drivers don't know about it
