Here is the problem, kiddy this morning I went somewhere and shut lights off and car. I noticed the lights were still up but offor. Now they won't go down.  Is this a switch problem?  
I can't seem to locate any either.

Power also runs through the popup control on the hazard side.

make sure the top switch on the right hand side of the column isnt pushed in, that switch keeps the pop-ups in the up position so the dont freeze shut in the winter.

Try pressing the on switch in like a 1/16th of an inch real slow. See what happens.

Why not pull the switch, take it apart and burnish the contacts...
Just bend back the small tabs and watch out for any small parts..
Very EZ to do...

Just my $0.02...  ;)

Because mine appears to have broken. One of the switches has fallen off the switch body. I don't want to repair a cosmetically broken switch.

Oh and this is not the switch in reference. This one is the steering column mounted turn signal/high beam switch.
