"Day Lights' don't go OFF when car turned off. What switch do I need?

Asked by Dec 21, 2014 at 08:06 AM about the 2008 Subaru Outback Basic

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2008 Subaru Outback.  The orange [front] and red [rear] lights don't go off when I turn car off/take out key.  The headlights work properly.  A repairman said I need the 'lights switch' that is toggled in the steering column when I turn lights ON/OFF.  Do you you know the name of this product for my make/model?  Thx so much.

My bad. On the top of the steering column there is a switch you can toggle which turns the 'day lights' ON/OFF. You can use this switch to turn the lights on without having the key in the ignition. I didn't know about this switch, and turned it ON when cleaning the dashboard.
