I'd check the fuse box first (if ALL running lights out) Otherwise it's probably the the switch - check for a loose wire to the switch also. It's possible for the switch to still operate the headlights but have a bad running light contact.

I took it to a Lotus dealership in Atlanta and they said was the switch so I am need the switch. Do you know any where in the US to get a switch?

Try either from the dealer or JAE.

Did you ask the dealer about the switch when you were there?

I agree JAE for parts.

If you can't find in US try sjsportscars.co.uk part #a111m002f. It is the same switch used on the Pugueot 106. You can, of course light your running lights with the parking light switch which should keep you legal at night until you can get one. Too bad they don't sell the 106 here or your search would be much easier.
