Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

Is it the front parking lights and rear tail lights that are flashing?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
both front parking lights and rear tail lights are flashing
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Not only that. All inside lights are also flashing. There is a continuous clicking sound at the right side under the hood (facing the car).
Expert:  Jay replied 4 months ago.

That is a sign of a After Market alarm. The parking lights are not part of the factory alarm. If the factory alarm was going off, only the front head lights would be flashing. So what you are going to want to do is see if you can locate the after market alarm control module and unplug it to disable it.
