Hello, thanks for postingDo the lights still stay on even when the light switch is in the off position?Was anything done recently to the electrical system on the car, anything repaired or replaced?Does it have the auto headlight system or manual on off switch?

1. Yes
2. Replaced the Relay Assembly Running Light #82810
3. Both Light switch on steering column/Turn signal

#2 - Relay Assembly Running light #8210 had to be replaced due to a burned link for the parking lights. Replaced all worked fine. Problem back again today.

Here is an update of the symptom after replacing 8210: The high beam indicator light blinks in low light. It flashed the instrument panel lights briefly. It looked like it was trying to turn on the lights.

Thanks for the reply, just so I'm clear on what's going on, do the headlights do the same thing or only the tail/park lights?It sounds like maybe a bad ground, have you checked all the fuses both under the hood and inside for loose fit, corrosion and any discolored wires on the connectors going into the junction block at the left lower dash?
