Noticed the other day my park lights are on with the engine running and the switch in the OFF position. Figured the indicator/wiper assembly was faulty and replaced it. Same problem exists.... Any ideas?
Mine is not a US car so is not supposed to work like day running lights

I think that the parking lamp circuit may use a ground type switch; if so, it is likely that a wire has become grounded somewhere between the lamp control wire and the combination switch or, since you have already replaced it, the combination switch connector. You will need to find a FSM with the wiring colour codes, and trace back the faulty circuit from the combination switch connector.

You did not specify the year of your car, but a good source of Swift wiring diagrams are at:

Good luck.

There is a particularly clear diagram on page 11 of the 1994 swift diagram at http://metroxfi.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/suzuki_swift_1994.pdf.

It shows the red/yellow wire distributing power to all of the parking lamps originating at the combination switch and flowing through the fuse/junction block.
