2011 Volkswagen Jetta TDI: No Parking Lights?

February 14, 2012

11 vw jetta light switch I was looking at the light switch on our Jetta this morning and was curious about how few options I had for lighting choices. From 9 o'clock to 12 o'clock, we've got Fog Lights, Lights Off and Low Beams. No Parking Lights option.

I can live without automatic headlights, but I actually use parking lights frequently enough to miss this option on the switch. The owner's manual tells me that when the ignition is switched off, the parking lights and daytime running lights may stay on, and that "Parking Lights" as a light switch option is available on some Jettas. But this isn't the case on our TDI's light switch.

What do Jetta TDI owners do at the drive-in? Does anyone go to the drive-in anymore? I used to love the drive-in.
