Running lights will not turn off when key is off and out

Customer Question
they stay on indefinitely. Problem...
Running lights will not turn off when key is off and out they stay on indefinitely. Problem started when I could not not remove head assembly so i removed the tank behimd it and moved the fuse box out of the way. Replaced the low beam. It did not come on, there is no power to the plug to the low beam, and the running lights stay on
JA: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?
Customer: Consistant , with all positions on the control on the stering column, the lights only flickered at the very begining once or twice and have stayed on since
JA: What is the model/year of your Nissan?
Customer: 2002 altima
JA: Are you fixing your Altima yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes so far, pulled and replaced the low beam control, the lowbeam on the other dide went out and came back on accordingly, the running lights stayed on, the fuses all look good, i figured if the low beam had shorted to the running lights it would turn then of when i pulled the relay. Nope
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No

Hey there, thanks for the question. Usually when I see these types of issues it’s the result of a short to ground. This circuit does not require the ignition for power, just the switch combinations detected by the BCM for grounding.
