You can probably wire a switch into the parking light circuit. That will kill all clearance lights and tail lights but the brake lights will still work when you hit the brakes.

do what he said, but make another switch to tap the brake light circuit (ground it out or make an open which ever it is)

Make sure it is after the shifter so you won't have problems shifting out of park.

if you look under the dash you'll see your brake pedal... you should see a little switch on the back of the pedal. thats what you need to tap

Cool, thanks, I see if I can wire a switch in once my warrenty runs out and do a write up. What about the wires to kill the rest of the lights?

I guess just find the parking light fuse and splice in after the box. I'm not sure if the parking lamp fuse powers anything else.

you'd have to find an EWD and find a junction connector or something that you can work with

There's a whole bunch of wires under the driver's kick panel. I know the reverse light wiring goes through there because I tapped into that on mine. Pretty sure the taillight and brake lights go through there also. There is a link on here to the factory service manual on ttora. If you're willing to spend some time studying the wiring diagrams, it should be as simple as putting in a toggle switch or two to break the circuits.

Nothing illegal. Haha. I just hate it when I'm parked somewhere with my car running or my foot on the brake at night and everyone who goes by stares at me wondering what I'm doing
