2006 Ford Escape Hybrid. Parking lights won't turn off even

Customer Question

2006 Ford Escape Hybrid. Parking lights won't turn off even if I pull the fuse. I'm Dave.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Not sure what else to say. Key is out, everything else is off. Lights stay on.

The lights that are staying on are the top bulbs at the rear and the outside bulbs at the front.

Hello, my name is***** sounds like the park lamp relay has failed which is located on interior fusebox. Here is a picture, let me know if you have more questions. Thanks.

I don't see anything like that panel. Just fuses. Do I have to remove the large panel which holds the small access panel?
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

The relay is on rear of fuse box so fuse box will need to be removed. Let me know how it goes or if you run into more questions. Thanks.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
OK. Let me remove it and take a look.
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

No problem, keep me updated. Thanks.

How do I remove the fuse panel? It appears I have to take the right cover off the whole center console.
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Those are instructions for the power distribution box under the hood, not the relays behind the interior fuse box.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Well, I guess they are for the interior fuse panel, but these instructions are worthless to anyone but a Ford mechanic. I am not happy with your reply or instructions.
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

It sounds like you are probably better off bringing vehicle to shop at this point. I'm sorry I could not be of more help, I hope you do not take it out on me that job is harder then expected. Thanks.

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

I can open question back up for someone else ot help if you would like.Thanks.

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

Would you like me to open question back up for someone else to help?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, I won't give you a bad review. But your instructions were really not helpful except in illustrating that this is a huge task which involves more than just replacing a relay. I hope I am not charged for this.
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

I'll put in refund request

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

Or would you prefer me open question back up so someoen else can walk you through repair?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No. It requires a lot of messing around including retraining the system after battery is reconnected. I'm in 2 feet of snow.
