my 99 impreza 2.2 has a weird problem, I cant turn the parking lights or headlights on through the normal switch but the parking lights can be flipped on by the switch on top of the steering wheel and the headlights are always on. (daytime running lights?)

is this a fuse, relay...or something more nefarious? I just bought the car and took it out at night and realized this was a problem. I cant figure out which fuse it would be looking at the diagram and any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

I forgot to mention that the dash lights dont turn on either...basically my headlight switch does nothing...but the turn signals as well as my high beams work just fine on the same stick.

I had the same problem with my forester. It turned out to be a short in the aftermarket alarm. If you have an aftermarket alarm check the wiring in the steering column(especially before buying the headlight switch).
