1.sparks from dashboard area near headlight switch were seen by my wife when she borrowed the vehicle. 2.now the headlights will not turn off, when the switch is turned to the off position the fog lights come on, head lights also will not completely come on.3. so far, $49 dianostic, switch needed (had to be special ordered B/C the part has been changed three times already)(doesn't that constitute a recall?)anyway it is going to cost me $79 for the new switch and they are not even sure that will fix the problem.
