Did the lights on your vehicle use to stay on for a couple of minutes after turning them off as my newer pickup does? If so, you will need a diagram of the lighting electrics to locate the timed relay which allows this function, it's probably bad and stuck on.

No the light also stay on in the park light position.i;m going to replace the 3 relays in the top center of the dash hope this takes care of the problem I was pulling a trailer when all this started.
