Exclamation Weird Problem - Parking Lights Wont Turn Off

Hello All,

I got in my car last night and drove to the local Subway restaurant. Everything was fine, until i turned my car off and got out. I noticed my parking lights were on(the lights where you turn the light switch one notch). I also noticed this only happened i took the key out of the ignition, not while it was in. The car also seemed to be laboring when i would turn it on. Meaning it seemed to take an extra second or two to turn on. I let my car idle for 30 minutes thinking it was the battery. This made the car sound better and like normal when i turned it on, but the lights still stay on when i take the key out. Sometimes it stays on sometimes it doesn't, but more times than not. Also i was driving and wanted to go in manu-matic mode or tiptronic mode. Nothing happened, it just stayed in D, but I then turned my car off and on and it started working again. I have an 04' Automatic Coupe. Never had this problem before, just wondering if anyone knows whats up or had a similar experience. My Infiniti dealer said to bring it in, but I can't until Monday.

Thanks In Advance

Did you try turning your switch to "OFF" after you pulled the keys out ? did that do anything??

Never mind on all my other ideas, I just saw you had '04 G. No "AUTO" headlights option on that one. This might be dealer time

your lights are set on 'auto' mode? try switching on/off the lights until you get it right. if that dont work take it to the dealer, it's still under warranty.

Sounds like a ghost in the car.

And by the way, all G's have "Auto" headlights.

I did not know all G's had auto lights.

so the question is then does this happen in Auto mode ? or other modes ?

Can you manually turn them off by switching to "OFF" ?
