Sounds like you've got some loose or crossed wiring that is causing the lights to stay on even when you shut them off. You may want to remove the fuse for the lights so that your battery doesn't get drained....at least until you figure out the issue.

A weak area in the Cruiser is the multifuntion switch, Headlamp,turn signal switch is all in one. If you are still under warranty, good, If not, they are not that hard to install.

Yes, the multifunction switch is a frequent replacement item. There's a lot going on there, so to speak, and they tend to wear out.

Hello, My turn signal glitched out as well on my 03 PT Cruiser so the fog lights would turn on/off as I would touch the turn indicator. Just open the fuse panel under the steering wheel to the left where I noticed the back of the fuse panel indicated that fuse #8 is for the fog lights. Simply pull this fuse and test it out so the fog lights wont give you a dead battery. (test it out after you pull the fuse) Your other option would be to pay to have the signal indicator replaced.
