Dashboard lights in 2011 Outback stay on after key removed.

Hello, my name is Bobby. Thanks for the question. Can you tell me if the lights will remain on until the battery dies?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Yes, as I have found no other way to turn them off.

Thank you. Last question. Is it just the instrument panel lights or all of the dash lights?

It's only the white lights for the instruments directly behind the steering column, plus red light circle around key/ignition entrance on the side of the steering column.

Thank you for the response. The two most common causes of this on your vehicle are the body module or the ignition switch. If the radio and nothing else are operational at the same time then I would suspect that it is the body module. It controls these systems on you vehicle. Did you plan on fixing this yourself or still have a warranty?
