05 Lesabre lights are always on
I have a 2005 Lesabre Limited. Ever since we bought the car in 06, the lights (all of them - inside and out) come on when you turn on the ignition. Pushing the headlight or parking light buttons or moving the Twilight Sentinal switch does nothing unless the car is in park. I figured that this is a safety feature, but I cannot find out any details in the owners manual. It was not a problem for the first few years, but now one by one all of the interior control light bulbs are burning out. the heater controls, the steering wheel control buttons, the heated seat controls buttons, the radio... you get the point. I want to begin the tedious task of replacing the bulbs, but first I would like to know if I can get the lights to go out when it is daytime. I have seen other similar year Lesabres with only daytime running lights on, so I guess it is possible. Please help.
If I CAN get the the lights to go out, I will need some advice on how to access/remove the items like the heater control panel and steering wheel controls to get to the bulbs inside. If anyone had had to do this, any tips or tricks would be helpful.
