My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.

If this is all of the park lights staying on with this fault here in some cases this can be caused by an internal electrical fault in the head/park light switch itself not shutting off power to these lights.Some of these vehicles may have a park lamp relay and I have seen this relay stick on and cause this as well.

This would need to be further tested to narrow down and locate the fault here requiring a multi meter for testing electrical as well as possibly a scan tool to display data in the vehicles computers.

I would first check all fuse and relay boxes to see if you can locate a relay for the park lights and if you do try tapping on it to see if they shut off then.If they do then this relay needs replaced to correct this here.

Thanks Pete

Is there a relay labeled park lamps or lighting at all that you can remove to see if the lights then turn off?If so most likely this is the relay at fault needing replaced as I have seen relays stick on in some cases and cause this type of fault here and when your kicking it it is rattling the relay and turning off the lights let me know.

Thanks Pete
