So instead of turning off the headlights, I've accidentally turned the knob to
Right-hand parking lamp. Which I only found out this morning when I saw one side of the headlights being on....terrible mistake =(
Why do people use right or left hand parking lamp for? Even when the engine is completely off....I realised that the car doesn't automatically off the lights. Of course I was thinking...."There goes the battery" Sigh
It's the parking light, IIRC, commonly used in Europe. The light farthest from the curb (far side as they call it) is the one that is lit when you're parked on a dark roadway so other cars won't nick your parked vehicle.
Speaking of car batteries, it may be worthwhile to invest in a battery trickle charger.
