Hello and welcome to Just Answer! I will do my best to help you today. I think the problem is your auto lamps module. I think it is keeping the lights on. As for the parking light out make sure you have power at fuse #6 it is a 15 amp fuse in the fuse box under the hood.

Sorry for the mix up. The system is much simpler I think your turn signal switch is causing all your problems.

i just replaced the multifunction (turn signal) switch and that did not fix it. so far this problem has cost me 215.00 and still not fixed and that is even with your help.

i am not satisfied and am just going to take it to the ford dealership to pay another 85.00

to hook it up to their computer to find out what the problem is and get it fixed.
