Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
Unless you have aftermarket lights or the originals have been wired to operate differently then lights staying on won't be the issue. As long as the instrument cluster is operating correctly then the lights would time out whether they were turned on manually at the dimmer switch or by leaving a door open.
You may have a component drawing current while the vehicle is parked. Tis could be a module issue, a light coming on or staying on, a door ajar switch issue, or even failed diodes in the alternator. If lights are truly staying on in the vehicle then the instrument cluster would be the most likely cause.
It's also possible that the problem is simply the battery. The first thing that should be done is have the battery load tested. If it does pass then an ignition off draw test will need to be done to see if there is a draw.
