Hi, I have a 2000 prelude sh and the dash, taillights and parking lights won't turn off when I turn the car off, if I pull the 10 amp hazard fuse the lights will turn off but no blinkers taillights or parking lights, ive checked all grounds fuses and bulbs and all is fine from what I can see, I have not been able to remove the flasher, or hazard relay for the fact I can not get them to unclip(flasher)i was thinking of installing a master battery shut off switch to avoid popping the hood whenever I want to turn the car on or off. Any help would be great!You guys have helped a lot of people awesome site!
thanks,

If any rewiring was done on the car need to be rechecked
installed any after market devises check the wiring
check the light switch
if you have an after market alarm system check it

Hi vteckid79,

If your car is equipped with DRL, the control unit at the driver door is faulty.

So I pulled the viper alarm out as well as the indiglo gauges and no luck, also the usdm ludes did not come with drl but canadian did, it was wired for fogs.
I looked a second time at my fuses and see a few fuses that say daytime light pulled them and same issue, I also found four cut wires one black one orange and green(horizontal stripe) one green and red stripe(vertical stripe) and one yellow and red stripe(vertical stripe) I tried to upload a camera phone pic but would not accept it, if anyone has an idea pm me with your cell # or email so I can send you the pic to look at.
Thanks guys for any and all help, if all else fails im thinkin leave the 10 amp hazard in and install a master battery cutoff.

Hi vteckid79,

Without DRL, the circuit is simple. Hazard fuse is same as stop light, remove brake bulbs and see if the problem stops, it could be brake bulbs are are not seated correctly and providing current to the light circuit.
