The parking lights are made to run independent of the ignition so you can use them when the car is off. Running the headlights with the car off can be detrimental to the battery and thus Saab eliminated the possibilty of that happening. Another Saab quirk? Like the feature that prevents locking the driver's side door except by key, it's pure Scandanavian pragmatism.
