Re: Introduction and a side lights question
I think you may have turned on the parking lights!
Quite tricky to do though - even when you know about them.
I suspect you have turned the key to the off position then a little further without realising. There is a little black button on the barrel which if pressed and the key is turned further it activates your parking lights.
Try turning the ignition on and then turning off and removing the key at the first chance, should work - it could just be a worn barrel allowing you to advance to the parking light position.
Hope this makes sense!
You will love the 156, was my first Alfa...
