Trying to come up with a solution, in the mean time you could disconnect the neg battery terminal.

Would it do that if the battery was going bad

Not that I know of but stranger things have happen. Disconnecting the battery at least won't run it down.

Have you tried moving the ignition around to make sure it is locked?

Ok, there is a relay for the lights that probably is bad. This would be in the fuse panel. You can get these at your local parts store.

Are you sure it's the tail-lights and not brake lights? Brake lights are far more common to get stuck on than tail lights. The switch under the brake pedal can go bad and become stuck, key on or not.

Click that image to size up. No, actually I can think of no reason that is has had to be replaced more than one time other than overload or the first replacement switch was bad right from box. That happens.
