It'* been a while since I posted this but thought I'd give an update. They now shut off when I want them to!

The story:
While at the hospital (awaiting my baby girl!) We drove the Bonne, parking lights stayed on, figured they would eventually shut off (like every other time) go to leave a couple days later and the battery is dead. So I got a jump from someone in the lot, pissed, deprived of sleep, starting tearing my dash apart while driving home. Couldn't get the lights to turn off when I got home so I just lost it and starting literally punching the switch, heard a click and now the switch operates smoother and the lights turn off with ease.

Probably not the best fix, but whatever works.

Ugh... join the club, I'm embarrassed to say. Can't remember the last time _I_ logged in here recently... Domestic life expands to fill your entire day, especially when you have three kids.

Yeah... my dash is acting up again, too. Time for another rebuild. The HUD stays out unless I nudge the slider _just_ right; the Twilight Sentinel hasn't worked since I don't know when... Basically I'm just going to pull everything out for some good contact cleaning.
